Heritage protection reform

The Government is proposing to change the current system of heritage protection. Main changes proposed are;

Some changes can be implemented with current legislation, others will need a new act of Parliament. The draft Heritage Protection Bill, which contained the proposed changes, was dropped from the Queen's Speech in December 2008 so its progress through Parliament has been delayed for the time being. The English Heritage site External Hyperlink explains which changes can and cannot proceed without the bill.
