Historic Environment Law:
Planning, listed buildings, monuments, conservation areas and objects

by Richard Harwood

Publisher: Institute of Art & Law (12 Oct 2012)

This book covers the planning system and deals with the historic environment and the designation and control applied to listed buildings, conservation areas, scheduled monuments, archaeological areas, gardens, battlefields and World Heritage Sites. It addresses the removal of art and antiquities from site and buildings, including treasure and the consequences of unlawful removal. Discrete regimes are discussed, including the Church of England, military remains and wrecks.

Fully up to date, the book explains the development consent system for major infrastructure projects, along with the changes introduced by the Localism Act 2011. The National Planning Policy Framework and recent case law, not least the enlargement of planning control over demolition, are analysed. The book deals clearly with the increasing differences between English and Welsh legislation and policy and contains a wealth of statutory material, including the Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Areas Act 1979, Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Regulations 1990, The Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) (Wales) Regulations 2012, the Listed Buildings Act 1990, the Treasure Act 1996 and others.

Richard Harwood is a barrister practising in planning and environmental law acting for landowners, developers, public authorities, the art market, interest groups and local residents.

He has appeared in many of the leading historic environment cases of recent years and has won several key cases on behalf of SAVE Britain's Heritage.
