The HELM website includes information on guidance available from English Heritage, as well as local authorities, amenity groups and relevant bodies.

English Heritage guidance

The English Heritage guidance library can be searched and guidance downloaded as PDF documents. >>

Local Authority guidance

Many Local Authorities produce their own guidance on a wide range of topics and English Heritage is keen to encourage sharing of knowledge and experience. A list of guidance documents and links is available from our Local Authority guidance section.

In 2004, English Heritage commissioned Oxford Brookes University to collate the database of local authority publications on the historic environment. An initial telephone pilot survey was followed by a comprehensive questionnaire survey. A summary report of the data can be downloaded.

You can also fill in our online form to submit Local Authority guidance of your own. >>
