3. ECONOMY AND ENVIRONMENT: Historic Environment

VISION: Historic activity often shapes what we value today in rural Surrey. Specialist advice and information is important to promote understanding and legal responsibilities of the historic environment.

This could be achieved by:

* Understanding rural heritage assets, and those which it is most important to conserve
* Ensure that local planning authorities have access to available information and expert advice
* Use of the Historic Environment Record to inform and influence decisions
* Initiatives to increase public knowledge, interest and awareness in Surrey’s history


Answer - Agree

Public awareness and conservation are vital.   These should be promoted.  We need to understand but we also need a presumption that we should protect and preserve rather than exploit and damage as a default.  We should seek to conserve all rural heritage assets, not only those deemed "most important" by a bureaucrat.
