Saffron Walden Museum Collections Development Policy 2020-2025

The policy sets out what the Museum collects and how; priorities for collecting and for rationalisation, and the legal and ethical framework in which acquisition and disposal of collections takes place. It is a key document required of all museums by the government's Accreditation scheme (minimum standard for public museums, administered by Arts Council England). An updated Collections Development Policy, approved by the Council, is required for the Museum's Accreditation review in early 2020.
