The standard reference work for lawyers, planners and all others working in this area on the law concerning the protection of listed buildings and other heritage assets in the UK. Explains how the built heritage is protected, how planning controls apply, powers to bring about repairs, acquisition of historic buildings by public authorities, and the consequences of carrying out works without consent.

Since the Fourth Edition of this work, now titled Listed Buildings and Other Heritage Assets, there have been a number of important new statutes changing the law in this area – including the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Act 2013, the Historic Environment (Wales) Act 2016, the Historic Environment (Scotland) Acts 2011 and 2014, and the Planning Act (Northern Ireland) 2011. Secondary legislation too has continued to evolve, with a new General Permitted Development Order, new Appeals Rules, and new Faculty Jurisdiction Rules governing works to churches.

Just as importantly, central government policy has developed, with PPG15 being replaced by the National Planning Policy Framework, the web-based Planning Practice Guidance and, in 2015, the Good Practice Advice notes from Historic England – the new name for the regulatory arm of English Heritage. Revised policy is also, at last, emerging in Wales. And, as always, the courts have remained active, with over 80 directly relevant decisions, particularly as to the significance of heritage assets in determining planning applications.

All of these developments have been incorporated in the new edition of this comprehensive and practical book, which continues to be an essential reference source for planning solicitors and barristers, local authority planning and legal departments, conservation organisations, surveyors, architects and all others practising in this area.
