A Heritage Impact Assessment is a report which provides an assessment of the impacts upon a heritage asset. This goes further and beyond the work carried out by a heritage statement.
A Heritage Impact Assessment will be required for the following types of proposals:
A Heritage Impact Assessment would result in a report which would provide the Local Planning Authority with enough information to adequately understand the impact of any proposals on the significance of any heritage assets affected. Planning Applications which do not include this information are likely to be considered invalid, won’t be registered or will be refused.
A good assessment will provide the local planning authority with the right information to understand the project and its potential impacts. It will also help guide a project to make the most of heritage opportunities and to lessen the potential heritage impact and improve the design of a proposal.
