Part 1 of this guidance is a reference guide for planning authorities when deciding if the Department should be consulted on an application for planning permission or listed building consent. It provides a checklist to assist planning authorities in screening planning applications, prior to issuing a consultation to the Department's Historic Environment Division.
Part 2 and Part 3 are checklists for applicants and agents when preparing a planning submission or listed building consent application. Comprehensive applications will assist decision making by facilitating a more streamlined consultation process for both planning authorities and statutory consultees. It is recommended that planning authorities also refer to this information, prior to issuing a consultation to the Department's Historic Environment Division.
