IHBC members from across the UK with Continuing Professional Development (CPD) priorities in the area, may be interested in a reminder that the Heritage Planning Case Database from Historic England (HE) can be used to search for appeal and call-in decisions relating to planning permission affecting heritage assets and listed building consent in England.
IHBC Director Seán O’Reilly said: ‘Important resources such as this are a critical complement for the busy practitioner to the IHBC’s own support services, such as our online ‘ToolBox’ resource that includes our Research Notes and Guidance Notes’.
HE writes of its service:
‘Cases have been summarised using a standard list of search terms. Keyword searching may be more successful if you use words or phrases from the National Planning Policy Framework. Historic England have compiled a standard list of search terms which have been used to summarise each case. You can also search by address, date or decision reference.
Summaries of consistory court cases can be found in the Ecclesiastical Law Journal
