PROTECTED BUILDINGS STRUCTURES AND LANDSCAPES

In the UK and the Republic of Ireland (RoI) there are similar forms of constraint that can be imposed on historic buildings, structure or landscape that can restrict how they are altered, adapted or repaired, beyond that encountered by the normal constraints of normal national or local planning legislation. This heritage based legislation has largely been developed to provide additional protection to the sensitive and diminishing elements of the national historic built environment.

 

Such legislation is usually controlled or managed by specific national scheduling bodies:

 

  • Historic England (HE)
  • Historic Environment Scotland (HES)
  • CADW (Wales)
  • 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
