Pilot scheme to give local government a cultural heart

  • Comment

The Department of Culture, Media and Sport has chosen 14 local authorities across England to pilot a new government scheme to put cultural issues 'at the heart of local decision-making'.

Each of the councils will develop local cultural strategies on how to take decisions on development of tourism, sport and leisure facilities and other artistic and recreational activities into account. The local authorities chosen are Hounslow and Newham in London, Wolverhampton, Nottinghamshire, Cherwell, Cornwall, Berwick upon Tweed, Bolton, Southend on Sea, Easington, Torridge and North Devon.
