Detail

The Culture White Paper sets out the government’s vision, strategy and proposals for the cultural sectors (the arts, museums and galleries, libraries, archives and heritage). It outlines the key issues facing the cultural sectors today and the role we want culture to play in our society; what the government and our public public bodies will do to address those issues; and how we will ensure that everyone can enjoy and benefit from culture.

As announced at Budget 2016 and included in the White Paper the government will establish a review to examine how church buildings and cathedrals in England can become more financially sustainable. Bernard Taylor, Deputy Lieutenant for Oxfordshire, will lead the review. The terms of reference can be found in the document above.
