Historic environment good practice advice
It was accompanied by a guide to Planning Policy Statement 5: Planning for the Historic Environment: Historic Environment Planning Practice Guide published by Department for Communities and Local Government (CLG) and English Heritage in March 2010. This provided guidance on planning policy in relation to designated and non-designated heritage assets.
The subsequent publication of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) in March 2012 replaced a wide range of previous planning policy statements including PPS5. English Heritage and the Historic Environment Forum began preparing replacement guidance, however, in the meantime, as the intent of the NPPF was considered to be similar to PPS5 and the existing guidance remained relevant, it continued to be used and ‘government endorsed’.
On 11 July 2014, English Heritage published three pieces of draft replacement guidance for consultation. Along with additional technical advice it is intended that these will replace both the 'Planning and the Historic Environment: Historic Environment Planning Practice Guide' and a number of other pieces of English Heritage guidance.
They suggest that the new guidance does not increase or reduce the protection provided to heritage assets, but condenses previous guidance and includes some new provisions, such as Certificates of Lawful Proposed Works which can be used to confirm that planning permission is not required for works to heritage assets.
The consultation closed on 4 September 2014, and the final documents were published by the new organisation 'Historic England' on 25 March 2015.
