Long barrow

‘Scheduling’ is a shorthand term used to refer to the legal system for protecting and conserving nationally important archaeological sites in the United Kingdom. English Heritage, through its Monuments Protection Programme, takes a leading role in identifying sites in England for designation by the Secretary of State as ‘scheduled monuments’. Once a site is scheduled, consent must be obtained from the Secretary of State for any works which affect it, and again English Heritage plays a central role, in this case through our regional teams, in giving advice to Government on individual applications for consent. Our regional teams are also available to offer management advice, and sometimes grants may be available to help with a monument’s management.

Scheduling is not the only means of protecting our archaeological heritage for future generations — the planning system in particular plays a major part — but it is an important dimension of modem archaeological conservation. Scheduling is the only legal protection available specifically for archaeological sites, and its associated controls extend more widely than the planning system. Scheduling is, however, restricted carefully to the most important sites and monuments of each type and to those for which scheduling provides the most appropriate protection. It does not affect freehold title or other interests in the land, although scheduling decisions are recorded by the local Land Charge Registrar, nor does it create any new right of public access.
