(1)   What assessment the Council has made of the First and Second War Memorials within the Council area; and

(2)   What measures have been identified to preserve our war memorial heritage.

Response 29-01-2013

(1) Each of the 44 war memorials are inspected on an annual basis and any small repairs found are repaired as necessary. If more structural repairs are found then these are passed over to The Moray Council's Property Services Section for inspection/report and subsequent repair.

(2) Close working relationships exist with the various branches of the Royal British legion and they are involved in any structural repair.  The Royal British Legion are also actively involved in putting forward memorials in their area for competitions such as "Best kept War Memorial".
