This document is part of a series of non-statutory guidance notes about managing change in the historic environment. They explain how to apply the policies in the Historic Environment Policy for Scotland.

This guidance note sets out the principles that apply to the management of the historic environment as part of an overall asset management approach to land and property portfolios in public and private ownership.

We regularly review and update our policy advice and guidance. When we propose any changes, we hold public consultations to ensure your opinions can help to shape the guidance we provide. Find out more about our current consultations.
