Heritage provides a range of services and information about the protection and enhancement of the historic built environment and the natural environment.

The Historic Environment

This includes guidance on listed buildings, conservation areas and related applications for consents and permissions.

There is also advice on when consent is required: the relevant application forms, repairs and how to search for a listed building.

The Natural Environment

This includes guidance on how trees might be protected and application forms for work on protected trees.

There is also advice on biodiversity and landscape matters, rural hedgerows and high hedge complaints.
