Historic Environment Policy for Scotland

A cover document with an outline of Scotland in green.

We collectively have a duty of care for our historic environment. This Policy outlines how we should undertake this duty whenever a decision in the planning system will affect Scotland's historic environment.

The Policy comes into use on Wednesday 1 May 2019 when it replaces the Historic Environment Scotland Policy Statement.
