We are anticipating the launch of new Principles for Cultural Heritage Impact Assessment for the sector in July.

This is a collaborative project between IEMA, the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists, and the Institute of Historic Building Conservation.

The project has been delivered by an expert project advisory panel. The panel believes there is a pressing need for guidelines that present a clear, well respected and authoritative view of what constitutes current good practice in cultural heritage studies

for impact assessment. The primary purpose of the new guidelines is “to show how the broad principles and key assessment requirements of the impact assessment process apply to cultural heritage issues throughout the project lifecycle.”

Following a consultation with the sector, the new principles are due to be published in July. Keep an eye on the IEMA events pages for a launch webinar that will provide an overview of the project and document, followed by a Q&A session with the panel. Once published, a copy of the principles will be available on the impact assessment pages of IEMA‘s website.
