What is the Historic Environment Record?
Planning and the HER
The HER plays an important role in planning and can be used to inform heritage statements as required by the City Council's validation checklist and in line with paragraph 128 of the NPPF which states that when submitting an application affecting a heritage asset 'as a minimum the relevant historic environment record should have been consulted and the heritage assets assessed using appropriate expertise where necessary'.
