If you are planning a restoration, alteration, extension (or demolition) to a Listed Building/Ancient Monument [or asset], you will now require a Heritage Statement and/or a Heritage Impact Assessment to be submitted to your Local Authority to accompany your Listed Building Consent Application.
Your Listed Building Consent Application will [almost certainly] be forwarded to Historic England for consideration of and/or ultimate approval.
Heritage Statements encompass what is special about an Historic Building or Ancient Monument and helps to guide changes to protect the heritage interest while still allowing adaptation to modern day living expectations.
Heritage Impact Assessments are similar to a Heritage Statement but includes an outline of any Proposed Works, an assessment of impact on the building, the immediate/local environment and/or landscape and a mitigation strategy or Justification to support your Proposal/s. Architectural Drawings and Method Statements are also a requirement for inclusion.
