Heritage, Archaeology and Conservation
In East Lindsey we have a vast and fascinating heritage. This can be seen throughout our towns, villages and within the wider landscape. It is important that this heritage is preserved and enhanced so that future generations can continue to enjoy it. To ensure local heritage is given due consideration during development we have two specialist Officers, who provide advice relating to all types of heritage asset.
Lincolnshire County Council provide advice relating to the county's Archaeology and its setting. This can include planning applications that involve digging or development in areas that have the potential to disturb or affect remains. Lincolnshire County Council are also responsible for maintaining and providing access to our Historic Environment Record (HER).
We also provide advice in house, on development relating to Historic Buildings and Conservation Areas, or their setting, through our Planning Service. This includes both designated and non-designated heritage assets.
Current government planning guidance, The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF), requires an applicant to provide sufficient information to understand the potential impact of a proposal on any heritage asset as part of the planning process. To assist with this, we provide pre-application advice. More information on our pre-application service can be found here.
