Our petition has already passed 1,200 signatures, asking for conservation management plans to be made compulsory for scheduled monuments at risk like Ruperra Castle. The 250 signature threshold has been reached which means the Senedd Petitions Committee will review it when it closes in July 2023, and decide what they can do to help take the petition forward. Thank you to everyone that has helped to make this happen. We’d like to reach 10,000 signatures to be considered for a debate in the Senedd chamber. We need all of our supporters that care about Welsh heritage to share the petition so it represents all of Wales.
Scheduled monuments are protected to preserve archaeology and buildings so that future generations can learn from our past. Many monuments are stable, others need managing to slow or avoid the effects of natural deterioration. Cadw’s website suggests owners may find it useful to draw up a Conservation Management Plan (CMP) to guide their decisions, but it’s not a requirement. Welsh Government should make CMPs compulsory for scheduled monuments at risk, to avoid neglect and subsequent loss.
We are grateful for photos to remember what Ruperra looked like in all its glory, but as a minimum we would like to see it prevented from deteriorating any further so future generations can enjoy it. One of the towers has fallen and there are serious cracks in the others...
