Apply online for an Historic Environment Record (HER) consultation report

An HER consultation report sets out summary information about the location and extent of known heritage assets (designated and undesignated) and archaeological potential and provides space for the person requesting the report to add information about past and future impacts at the site.

The report is intended to initiate pre-application discussions and to be submitted with a planning application to satisfy local planning authority validation requirements for a heritage statement (National Planning Policy Framework Paragraph 128).
