Historic England consultation: Climate Change and Historic Building Adaptation Advice Note
Historic England has opened a consultation on its new Advice Note on Climate Change and Historic Building Adaptation. It aims to provide advice to local planning authorities, and others involved in the planning process, on:
• The need for planning permissions and/or other consents for some of the common changes required to decarbonise and improve the energy efficiency of historic buildings.
• Determining proposals to decarbonise and improve the energy efficiency of historic buildings to enable positive climate action.
• How local plans and other planning mechanisms can deliver a positive strategy for historic buildings that proactively supports climate action.
The consultation will close at 12 midnight on Sunday 24 December.
