Following preparations including supporting secondary legislation and statutory guidance, further provisions of the Historic Environment (Wales) Act 2016 came into force on 31 May 2017:
- Consultation, interim protection and review for scheduled monuments and listed buildings (Sections 3 and 4 and 24 to 26 and Schedules 1 and 2) These provisions make scheduling and listing more open and accountable and give interim protection to historic assets while the Welsh Ministers consult on proposed designations.
- Simplified scheduled monument consent process (Section 5). This establishes a streamlined application process for minor, beneficial works to a scheduled monument.
- Recovery of costs for urgent works to listed buildings (Section 30(6)). This brings the 2016 Act’s provisions on urgent works to listed buildings fully into effect. Local authorities are now able to make the costs of urgent works a local land charge and collect interest on outstanding sums.
- Statutory historic environment records (Sections 35 to 37). The Welsh Ministers must now compile and maintain a historic environment record for each Welsh local authority area. The Archwilio website (www.cofiadurcahcymru.org.uk/arch/) provides access to the historic environment records. Further details on these provisions and the supporting regulations and orders that also come into force today are available on the Cadw website.
