Review of the National Heritage Protection Plan

The first (2010-15) National Heritage Protection Plan (NHPP) was an English Heritage Plan much criticised by the CLA and others for focusing almost entirely on research and on new heritage designation, and largely ignoring the other 90 per cent of heritage protection, especially the great and growing problems in the heritage consent system, which greatly threaten heritage (and cause major problems for CLA members).  This review is at least beginning to ask the key questions.  The CLA response stresses the importance of broadening the scope of the NHPP to identify all the real threats, and of devising and implementing effective solutions.  It also stresses the importance of English Heritage/Historic England becoming willing to work closely with its key stakeholders to achieve this.

Planning performance and planning contributions

The CLA response to this consultation maintains that the planning performance of planning authorities should be measured by reference to the time it takes to make decisions on planning applications for rural economic development rather than just focussing on criteria around major development applications.  On the second part of the consultation we object to the exclusion of Rural Exception Sites from the 10-unit threshold because we believe this will act as yet another disincentive to bringing forward any land for housing of any of type or tenure in our rural settlements.
