A new book, Historic Environment Law by Barrister Richard Harwood, who has won several key cases for SAVE Britain's Heritage, will be published on October 12th and is available at a discounted price until that date.
Historic Environment Law: Planning, listed buildings, monuments, conservation areas and objects is published by the Institute of Art and Law. This book covers the planning system and deals with the historic environment and the designation and control applied to listed buildings, conservation areas, scheduled monuments, archaeological areas, gardens, battlefields and World Heritage Sites. It addresses the removal of art and antiquities from site and buildings, including treasure and the consequences of unlawful removal. Discrete regimes are discussed, including the Church of England, military remains and wrecks.
Fully up to date, the book explains the development consent system for major infrastructure projects, along with the changes introduced by the Localism Act 2011. The National Planning Policy Framework and recent case law, not least the enlargement of planning control over demolition, are analysed. The book deals clearly with the increasing differences between English and Welsh legislation and policy and contains a wealth of statutory material, including the Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Areas Act 1979, the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Regulations 1990, the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) (Wales) Regulations 2012, the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990, the Treasure Act 1996 and others.
The book will be published at a cost of £58, but we are offering it at a pre-publication discounted rate of £48 for all orders received before 13th October. Orders may be placed online or via email or by telephone to 01982 560 666.
