Planning Policy Statement 5: Planning for the historic Environment published

Housing and Planning Minster John Healey yesterday confirmed the new Planning Policy Guidance 5: planning for the historic environment which aims to make heritage assets the centrepieces of rejuvenated towns and cities, and protect the historic environment for future generations.

The new guidelines provide the first integrated approach for developers and councils to work together to restore and enhance historic buildings, as well as monuments, parks, gardens and industrial sites.

A detailed Practice Guide from English Heritage accompanies the new guidance and explains how councils and developers can apply the new policies, and use heritage assets such as old theatres, churches and factories.
