DETR 01/2001 & CMS 01/2001 (11 July 2001)
This circular repeats much of the advice on the historic environment in circular 14/97, which in turn updated Planning Policy Guidance Note 15 Planning and the Historic Environment, originally published in September 1994. It also (in Appendix A) corrects an error from circular 14/97.
It makes significant changes to some consultation and other provisions:
Appendix C gives advice on listed buildings in conservation areas subject to action under part IX of the Housing Act 1985. Appendix D gives advice originally included in circular 14/97 on the House of Lords judgement in the case of Shimuzu (UK) Ltd v Westminster City Council.
The ruling affected the definition of "building" and of "demolition" in the context of listed building and conservation area consent. Appendix E lists the main heritage bodies and their addresses.
