Changes to advice provided by Historic Environment Team

The Historic Environment Team prides itself on providing a customer focus pre-application enquiry service, however currently the team is not fully resourced and it is with regret that until 1st April 2016, the Historic Environment Team will not be able to provide any pre-application advice.

You may therefore wish to consider an alternative means of obtaining a view on your enquiry by referring it to a planning consultant. The City Council's Heritage and Conservation website provides information along with other on-line resources:
