27.02.23 – Stoke on Trent Heritage Trust, Cannabis Grow in Hanley

Written by on 26 February 2023

Supporters who are passionate about preserving the city’s most historically important buildings are being urged to come forward to support the launch of a Stoke-on-Trent Heritage Trust.

Stoke-on-Trent City Council wants to set-up a Trust as part of ongoing efforts to help protect and repurpose the city’s heritage assets, and on the back of the launch of the Heritage Congress in 2022.

Now, subject to cabinet approval on Tuesday 28 February, the city council is set to start a recruitment campaign for shadow trustees to help formally establish a Stoke-on-Trent Heritage Trust.

The aim of the Trust is to facilitate and identify potential funding options to support the long-term security and sustainability of the city’s heritage buildings.
