Heritage issues

The historic environment is generally considered to include listed buildings, scheduled monuments, archaeological sites of quality and importance, registered parks and gardens, World Heritage Sites and conservation areas.

There are specific procedures for the planning and development of listed buildings, conservation areas and scheduled monuments in particular, so it is important to understand the significance and implications of designation.

The carrying out of workssignage and permitted development rights, and demolition can all be affected by designation.
