The UK's system for protecting its historic assets is changing. With responsibility for the listing system transferred from the Government to English Heritage, an opportunity has been taken to take stock of the listing system as a whole. And for the first time, the appeals system will provide an independent forum to consider cases. David Brock reports
The protection of our historic environment is under reform. There are currently several different lists of historic assets and in addition to changing the way listing is carried out, there are proposals to integrate the records systems. Currently, there are also conservation areas, the Historic Parks and Gardens Register, the Battlefields Register and World Heritage sites.
