Subject Committee: Historic Buildings

Huntly Castle

Conservation and management of historic buildings is an area of considerable overlap between archaeologists and conservation officers.

England: The Association is working with English Heritage, the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI), and the Institute of Historic Building Conservation (IHBC) to develop best practice for recording historic buildings. This will help ensure effective use of Planning Policy Guidance Note 15: 'Planning and the Historic Environment' to secure adequate recording of historic buildings within the planning process.

The committee also continues to lobby in every possible forum for the introduction of planning control over the demolition of all historic buildings.


Detailed advice regarding the proper analysis and conservation of historic buildings through the planning process can be found in this ALGAO publication:

Historic England guidance available from the former HELM website, including Understanding historic buildings: Policy and Guidance for Local Planning Authorities
