Historic Environment Planning Practice Guide

On 27 March 2012, the Government published the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF).

The NPPF supersedes Planning Policy Statement 5: Planning for the Historic Environment (PPS5) as Government Policy on the management of change to the Historic Environment in England.

The references to PPS5 policies in this document are obviously now redundant, but the policies in the NPPF are very similar and the intent is the same, so the Practice Guide remains almost entirely relevant and useful in the application of the NPPF.
