        Main Summary

          The network of Heritage Champions was set up in 2004 in order to champion the interests of the historic environment within local authorities. Heritage Champions are normally local councillors who have been nominated by their authority to carry out the role. This handbook is a guide for all Heritage Champions. It provides information on what they can do in their role, how they can do it, and outlines contacts and sources of information.
