Managing Change in the Historic Environment: Works on Scheduled Monuments

Managing Change in the Historic Environment: Works on Scheduled Monuments

Managing Change is a series of non-statutory guidance notes about managing change in the historic environment. They explain how to apply Government policies.

This guidance note sets out the legal requirements relating to works on scheduled monuments under the Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Areas Act 1979. It explains the process for applying for consent and the mechanisms for dealing with unauthorised works. In addition, the note aims to give owners, occupiers and land users clear guidance on their legal obligations when undertaking works on scheduled monuments.
