Proposals to simplify heritage consents unveiled

As reported in the Heritage Alliance Newsletter
“The Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill has been published, and includes several measures designed to improve the regulatory framework for heritage arising from the Penfold Review of Non-Planning Consents. The Bill aims to: merge conservation area consent back into the planning system; make it easier to apply for a Certificate of Immunity from the listing of a building; enable the creation of Heritage Partnership Agreements with statutory force; and allow the Heritage List for England to define the extent of special interest in a listed building more clearly.”
