Consultation on a Draft Methodology: Heritage Impact Assessment for Site Allocations in the Local Plan

We are consulting on the draft methodology for Heritage Impact Assessment (PDF, 392KB) for potential site allocations within the Local Plan for 4 weeks from Monday 15 May to Monday 12 June.  The purpose of a Heritage Impact Assessment (HIA) is to:

  • Identify any heritage asset(s) impacted by the potential site allocation
  • Identify any impact on the significance of the asset(s) that would result from the potential site allocation
  • Consider maximising enhancements and mitigating any harm through the potential site allocation
  • Make conclusions on whether the site allocation will conserve the heritage asset in an appropriate manner to its significance

Comments on the draft methodology will inform the final methodology and HIAs for the potential site allocations.  If you would like to respond to this consultation email your comments to or alternatively, you can post your comments to  the Planning Policy Team, Lancaster City Council, Dalton Square, Lancaster LA11PJ.
