Statutory scheduled monument notices
1. Consultation notices
Scheduled monument consultation notices
The 2016 Historic Environment (Wales) Act places a requirement for the Welsh Ministers to consult with owners, occupiers and other persons if they are proposing to schedule a monument, make a material amendment to a scheduled area or remove a monument from the schedule. Particulars of every consultation notice must be published electronically.
Interim protection — scheduled monuments
A monument being considered for scheduling or a proposed addition to a scheduled area will enjoy interim protection as if already scheduled under the Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Areas Act 1979. Interim protection will last from the beginning of the consultation period until the Welsh Ministers reach a decision on the designation.
