Welsh Battlefields Under Consideration by Assembly ? News To Me, but lt's hope it is true & if so we will see Action not Wind. Reviews of Heritage Protection in England & Wales NEW: CBA Draft Response to Review Now Available Online
Background The Department of Culture, Media and Sport in July 2003 launched a consultation on proposals for major reforms to the system by which England's heritage - including historic buildings, ancient monuments and historic areas - are protected. A parallel consultation has been commenced by the National Assembly for Wales (NAW). Comments are being sought in response to their proposals in England by DCMS by 31st October 2003, and in Wales by the NAW by 21st November 2003. A companion consultation paper covering regimes for protection of marine and maritime archaeology is due to follow later this summer and we will provide details here once they are available.Scope of Review The reviews are centred on examining the legislation through which the most important archaeological and historic assets are protected - which is primarily by designation as Listed Buildings and Scheduled Ancient Monuments, or Conservation Areas, Historic Battlefields, Historic Parks and Gardens, Protected Wrecks etc. Such statutory designation usually affords additional controls which helps to protect historic and archaeological assets.O.K! So start writing letters to your A.M. asking him/her for further info/results re above as they concern Welsh Battle field sites. Inform me of the feedback ?
