Launch of Principles of Cultural Heritage Impact Assessment in the UK

The Chartered Institute for Archaeologists (CIfA), the Institute of Historic Building Conservation (IHBC) and the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA) launch the new Principles for Cultural Heritage Impact Assessment for the sector. Join the Panel on the 20th of July as they take you through the document and field key questions from the sector.


Cultural heritage practitioners in the UK have, for some time, recognised the need for an authoritative set of principles that would promote good practice in cultural heritage impact assessment. This webinar launches the first edition of ‘Principles for Cultural Heritage Impact Assessment’, prepared jointly by IEMA, CIfA and IHBC.

Our cultural heritage, both tangible and intangible, is all-pervasive and is encountered in a wide variety of proposals that bring about change. Assessment of the impact of a proposal on cultural heritage assets will always have to be tailored to meet the requirements of a specific project. However, as this new publication shows, there are principles and good practice that can be applied widely across the sector. The application of these principles and good practice will enable practitioners to improve the standard of their assessments, regardless of their particular specialism within the discipline.
