Guidelines for Cultural Heritage Impact Assessment

CIfA IHBC IEMA logosThe IHBC is teaming up with the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists (CIfA) and the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA) to produce a guidance document for cultural heritage impact assessment (GCHIA), and develop guidance as authoritative as the Guidelines for Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment (GLVIA) has been in its sphere.

IHBC Chair James Caird said: ‘The project, launched on 19 April 2017, will produce generic guidance which can be used as an evaluation tool in all parts of the UK – and anywhere else – for use in formal environmental impact assessments and in less formal situations where impact assessment techniques are needed.’

‘Resources are still being sought to fund the research and drafting stages, with the sponsorship terms linked below.’

‘The IHBC would like to hear from members who have experience in the field of heritage assessment to act as ‘critical friends’ in the development of the text. Anyone interested should contact James Caird at
