Museum Disposal of items which do not meet the Collection Development Policy


Councillor Heather Timms (Portfolio Holder for Environment, Climate and Culture) explained that the Museum Service had undertaken housekeeping around the current collections to identify items that did not fit with the agreed development policy. Cabinet approval was required for the disposal of those assets now being released.




That Cabinet approves the process of disposing of the identified items in Warwickshire Museum Service’s collection which do not meet the requirements of the Museum Collection Development Policy (approved by Cabinet in January 2020) as listed in Appendix A to the report.
