Heritage statements

If you want to carry out work to a heritage asset, you need to include a written statement with your planning application.

There are two types of heritage asset:

  • Designated heritage asset: listed building, conservation area, scheduled ancient monument
  • Non-designated heritage asset: buildings or structures of local importance included on a local list, areas of archaeological importance, unknown buildings of importance

Contents of a heritage statement

The heritage statement must:

  • Include an assessment of the potential impact of the proposed alterations
  • Identify the important characteristics and significance of the existing structure

You should explain how the proposals would affect these and justify why the work is necessary or desirable

You can include the heritage statement as part of a design and access statement, as long you identify it clearly as a separate section.

You should have had the heritage asset assessed using appropriate expertise, such as architects, as appropriate to the scale of the proposal.

The scope and degree of detail necessary in a heritage statement will vary according to the particular circumstances of each application. See our Heritage statement guidance page for advice on the sort of information you may need to provide for different types of application.
