1 Cultural Heritage Asset Management Plan Training Preparing a CHAMP: condition surveys, management actions and reporting

2 Overview Stages involved in creating a CHAMP CHAMP pilot study in MAC Area 7 - current best practice Range, type and date of heritage assets involved Principal impacts of route operation, maintenance and development on heritage assets Practical mitigation measures Implications of CHAMPs for management planning Interaction of CHAMPs with other disciplines Next steps: CHAMP bids and delivery Questions and feedback M1, Lilbourne medieval motte and bailey, Northants

3 Stages involved in creating a CHAMP Prepare proposal Objectives, scope & methodology Resources, detailed cost estimate and programme Stage 1 – Review heritage data Supplied by EnvIS Meeting with Service Provider / HA to discuss constraints, access etc. Review the Service Provider’s future works schedule –maintenance and renewal programmes Prepare EnvIS-compatible pro formas for the cultural heritage asset condition survey Review and analyse the cultural heritage data supplied by EnvIS desk-based assessment of sites selection of subset of sites for field visits Stage 2 – Carry out condition survey of heritage assets Undertake Project Risk Assessment & draft Health and Safety Plan Programme site visits for condition surveys – identify constraints, book roadspace etc. Undertake site visits review current condition of the cultural heritage asset identify existing threats, risks and issues from the current management of the HA estate anticipate future issues based on Service Provider forward works programme Stage 3 – Prepare Cultural Heritage Asset Management Plan Collate field survey data into database & GIS Draft Cultural Heritage Asset Management Plan Part 1: Ready reference section Route Management Action Plans Three year Management Action Plan Risk assessment of MAC forward programme of works Part 2: Methodology, regional overview and statistical analysis Stage 4 – Submit CHAMP to HASubmit first draft, Service Provider and Regional Environmental Advisor to revise according to any recommendations, issue final CHAMP Stage 5 – Integrate CHAMP GIS & feed data up to HAGIS and EnvIS Integrate CHAMP into Service Provider internal GIS and feed data back into HAGIS and EnvIS Stage 6 – Use the CHAMP!Undertake management actions & use CHAMP data for forward planning and routine maintenance Feed data on management actions and updated assessments into EnvIS

4 Case study: CHAMP MAC Area 7 First CHAMP to be undertaken for an entire MAC Area 700 linear km if highways assessed 1189 heritage assets 120 listed buildings Assets date from Palaeolithic (c.10,000 BC) to modern period Aims of study: Assess the condition of heritage assets within & immediately adjacent to HA estate Identify those that are the responsibility of the HA and at risk of damage and/or loss of significance due to the environmental, operational and development impacts of the MAC’s current and predicted programme Deliverables: Technical report (illustrated; 144pp) Project Geographical Information System (GIS) with links to PDFs of condition survey asset visit sheets and digital photographs

7 CHAMP MAC Area 7 Distribution of tasks M45, New Oxford Canal (Northants) A1, Stamford (Lincs) M1, relict ridge and furrow at Brockhall Park (Northants) CHAMP project GIS Route planning Heritage & GIS specialists Create project GIS, a subset of the HA EnvIS database inventory of cultural heritage assets within and adjacent to the highway estate Assess the condition of selected cultural heritage assets by field survey Establish Management Action Priorities for cultural heritage assets Set out actions to protect and enhance assets within the context of the MAC’s forward works programme MAC management tasks Provide route and programme information Discuss implications of management priorities and actions with heritage team Implement the actions of the CHAMP Monitor the process and feed information to the Highways Agency Environmental Information System (EnvIS)

8 CHAMP MAC Area 7 1: Project GIS EnvIS Level 1 Dataset (statutory, EH): National Monuments Record 155 statutorily designated assets - World Heritage Sites, listed buildings, scheduled monuments, parks and gardens and historic battlefields (13% of all assets). EnvIS Level 2 Dataset (non-statutory, LPA): Historic Environment Record 1034 non-statutory assets (87% of all assets) A subset of assets within 8m of the HA estate boundary was clipped from the EnvIS dataset. This group of assets was subject to an initial stage of desk-based analysis to select sites for field assessment This was required as national and regional heritage inventories include details of assets that have been destroyed or are not visible in the field, as well as poorly geo-referenced entries and antiquarian finds.

21 CHAMP MAC Area 7 4: Management Action Priorities for cultural heritage assets Null : Not capable of visual condition assessment, or not owned by the HA. Non-HA assets, not located within the HA estate and/or maintained by others Assets no longer upstanding (though associated below- ground remains may survive) Assets with no visible remains, such as buried remains and cropmark sites. Green : Good condition, no remedial action is needed. Revisit in 24 months’ time. Amber : Satisfactory but not fully meeting EnvIS objectives. Review condition at 12 months, action needed in the next 24 months. Red : Poor condition and not meeting EnvIS objectives. Urgent corrective action is required within 12 months.
