HBAS is independent in its view of historic buildings and landscapes – we only recommend what we consider to be the most appropriate action for a particular historic building, site, or landscape.


In our approach to heritage protection we follow the ethos of all the major UK and international conservation bodies such as:


  • Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB)
  • Institute of Historic Building Conservation (IHBC)
  • ICOMoS (International Council on Monuments and Sites)
  • Chartered Institute for Archaeologists (CIfA)

We work closely with and follow the guidelines issued by the national heritage bodies across the UK and the Republic of Ireland (RoI)


  • Historic England (HE)
  • Historic Environment Scotland (HES)
  • CADW (Welsh Government)
  • Northern Ireland (NI) Environment Agency
  • Isle of Man Department of Local Government and the Environment
  • States of Jersey
  • States of Guernsey
  • RoI Department of Environment, Heritage & Local Government
