GN28-19 'Local Heritage Listing' by Local Authorities (England and Wales)

Local authorities can create 'local heritage lists' of heritage assets which are not significant enough to qualify for national listing/scheduling etc but are felt to be of sufficient local significance to be taken into account in planning decisions.  Less than half have local heritage lists, though more may do so in future.  Local heritage listing gives this heritage a significant degree of protection, and may affect (positively or negatively) owners and neighbouring owners.  This Guidance Note explains how it is carried out, what it means, and now members can be involved in, or influence, the process.

Agriculture, achieving net-zero emissions inquiry

The CLA has responded to the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee inquiry on agriculture, achieving net-zero emissions.  In our response, we highlight that landowners and managers are crucial to achieving net-zero across the economy.  The ambition to achieve net-zero for the sector should be reframed to look at the full range of positive contributions from farmers and landowners towards the national obligation rather than focussing on the sector specific emissions.
