Planning Casework

The Planning Casework Officer constantly monitors planning applications across the country to alter or demolish industrial sites and buildings and makes comments to feed into the planning process where appropriate.

Below you can see applications going back to 2015, actions taken by us and, in many cases, the result of the application.

We are made aware of applications via the Council for British Archaeology (CBA) database and when planning authorities request comment.

If you are aware of any applications affecting industrial sites which do not appear below please contact the Planning Casework Officer immediately as there are usually time limits for comment: planning@industrial-archaeology.org
