English Heritage - online heritage protection guide released
English Heritage have launched a comprehensive one-stop guide to heritage protection law, policy and guidance - aimed at helping policy-makers, owners and developers understand the challenges of heritage conservation.
A Guide to Heritage Protection in England covers everything from identifying and designating heritage assets to protecting heritage at risk. Frequently-asked questions about where you can find funding, how listed building consents work and the impact of European legislation are all answered - and an extensive glossary of technical jargon is included.
It also includes the repercussions of the National Planning Policy Framework and the Localism Act, and summarises upcoming changes in heritage protection legislation such as the Penfold Review. It will be reviewed regularly, taking any such changes into account, so those in need of help get up-to-date information.
