Approve Heritage Services Forward Plan,
2018-2021 and key policy documents for Archives and Local Studies
required as part of application for Archives Accreditation
(requisite as Place of Deposit under Public Records Act,
Consideration was given to the report which sought approval for an application under the Archives Accreditation Scheme and the supporting Forward Plan and key policy documents were included as part of the appendices. This scheme was the UK standard for archive services maintained by The National Archives and defined good practice and supported the ongoing development of archive services across the country.
This would enable Rotherham to continue to be a recognised Place of Deposit under the Public Records Act 1958, and which required Rotherham Archives and Local Studies to submit an application.
A successful application would be essential not only for members of the public, but also for future funders and partners, who could have confidence in the delivery of this service.
The Chair of the Overview and Scrutiny Management Board confirmed this report had been considered at the meeting of the Board on 12th September, 2018 who were fully supportive of the recommendation.
Resolved:- That the Heritage Service’s Forward Plan (2018-2022) and key policy documents to support the Council’s application for Archives Accreditation be approved.
