Social and Cultural Policy S-HER-1

Proposals with the potential to have a significant adverse impact upon heritage assets should only be supported if they demonstrate that they will, in order of preference:

a) avoid
b) minimise
c) mitigate significant adverse impacts upon heritage assets
d) if it is not possible to mitigate significant adverse impacts, proposals should state the case for proceeding.

Policy Considerations

  1. Proposals must identify and consider heritage assessts and provide evidence which illustrates how a proposal may impact assessts.
  2. Proposals should avoid indirect or direct impacts to heritage assessts in the South plan marine area. If this is not possible proposals should consider (but not limited to) use of different construction techniques, relocation or cataloguing of assets in consultation with Historic England.
  3. A list of historic environments are available form local authorities.
  4. The relevant regulators and advisors, local authorities and other bodies (such as local civic societies) should be consulted to ensure that heritage assets are considered in decision making.
  5. All heritage assets should be considered, including those that are not designated or have been discovered during development.
