Historic Environment

Historic environment considerations should form a key part of a development proposal and should help inform and shape the proposal put forward.  Historic Buildings and Historic Monuments are located across the country and an assessment of the impacts of development on these key features will likely be required.

The overall impact of the proposal on the historic environment will depend on the proximity of the feature and the size/scale of the proposal put forward.  In certain circumstances it may be worthwhile engaging with the relevant consultation authority before submitting an application in order to gauge an early opinion on acceptability.
