Organisational details

The aim of this survey is to find out what civic societies and others see as the impact of the loss of conservation officers in local government. 

As the nation celebrates 50 years to the day (28th September 2017), that Stamford, Lincolnshire was designated as a Conservation Area under the Civic Amenities Act 1967, we are launching this simple survey.

Fewer staff providing advice within local authorities is threatening the future of our historic environment. As we celebrate 50 years of Conservation Areas, this is wrong.  With conservation staff numbers being so hard hit by cuts, we have to ask how are councils coping with their duties to manage the historic environment?

We need your examples to help us build up a better and fuller picture of the extent and nature of those concerns.

Your answers will help Civic Voice and partners, to make the case for further investment into conservation budgets. We will use the results of the survey to prepare a report setting out key concerns and proposing some recommendations for action. 

Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey on the current status of conservation areas across England.

The survey will take you between ten and fifteen minutes to complete.
