Archaeology Planning Advice

Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service is responsible for providing formal advice on planning matters to the County and District Councils, Public Utilities, developers and members of the public. Worcester City Council and Wychavon and Malvern Hills District Councils also have archaeological planning advisors. Below are a series of leaflets and documents providing information on how archaeology and the historic environment interact with the planning process and who is responsible for the various stages involved.  The Historic Environment has for many years been an integral part of the planning process, and is currently managed through the National Planning Policy Framework, and Local Planning Policies.

For more information and guidance please explore the links below:

General information on the planning policies guiding historic environment protection can be found on the Planning Portal (opens in a new window). General information on Listed Buildings, Conservation Areas and Scheduled Monuments can be found on the Historic England website (opens in a new window).
