Stirling Heritage Strategy

A Heritage Strategy for Stirling

Across Scotland, many organisations develop heritage strategies or plans to help them to protect, conserve and celebrate their historic environment. Stirling has a rich heritage across the whole Council area and Stirling Council has decided to develop a new Heritage Strategy.

Elected Members have agreed that this should be led by Stirling City Heritage Trust. This will be developed during 2024 and will involve a wide consultation of local, regional and national organisations as well as individuals and communities. The aim is that as many people as possible in the Stirling Council area contribute their views and help to shape the plan.

Steering Group

The development of the strategy is being overseen by a steering group which includes the following:

  • Lindsay Lennie, Trust Manager, SCHT
  • Ann Jacob-Chandler, Stirling Council
  • Sharon Marklow, Stirling Council
  • Jillian Schofield, Stirling Council
  • Drew Leslie, Stirling Council
  • George Barbour, Stirling Council
  • Lynn Harris, Forth Valley Chamber of Commerce
  • Bryan Dickson, NTS
  • David Mitchell, HES
  • Stuart Mearns, Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park


A Forum will be established which includes representatives from a broad range of local, regional and national organisations and individuals who have specialist knowledge, experience and expertise in particular areas. They have been allocated into different themes:

  • Heritage & Planning
  • Skills & Education
  • History & Heritage
  • Commerce & Tourism
  • Climate Action

Representatives from Forum Groups will be invited to meet and help shape the Strategy.



The Stirling community will be invited to have their say through in-person events and questionnaires.
