This course will introduce planners in local authorities to how we understand, protect and manage the historic environment. It will look at the different asset types and how to understand and articulate significance. It will give you more confidence to be able to weigh up the impact on significance to heritage in planning applications, in conjunction with relevant specialist colleagues, and to ensure the historic environment is appropriately considered in local plans.
