GN12-20 Heritage Enforcement and Prosecution in England and Wales

This Guidance Note explains enforcement and prosecution in cases where there is (or it is being claimed that there is) building work which has breached listed building, planning, or scheduled monument law.  This is surprisingly common, often because local authorities do not understand the law.  It has a strong emphasis on the practical actions members can take in these circumstances.

It does not cover the separate issue of local authority action if buildings are in disrepair (for which see the separate CLA Guidance Note Solutions for problem heritage and heritage at risk).
