6 Points to cover What Cultural Heritage is Legislation and Policy Background Impacts on HA Business Why we need CHAMPs Next steps CHAMP Training

7 What is “cultural heritage”? ‘…a group of resources inherited from the past which people identify, independently of ownership, as a reflection and expression of their constantly evolving values, beliefs, knowledge and traditions. It includes all aspects of the environment resulting from the interaction between people and places through time.’ DMRB 11 definition following the Council of Europe, Framework Convention on the Value of Cultural Heritage for Society (Faro 2005) CHAMP Training

8 Range of cultural heritage Archaeological Remains Historic Buildings Historic Landscape CHAMP Training

9 Policy, Legislation and Guidance CHAMP Training

10 International Conventions UNESCO Convention on the Protection of World Heritage - World Heritage Sites, eg Stonehenge, Hadrian’s Wall, Bath, European Cultural Convention (1954) - all types of cultural assets. European Convention on the Protection of the Architectural Heritage (1985) - historic buildings. European Convention on the Protection of the Archaeological Heritage (1992) – archaeological remains. European Landscape Convention (2000) – historic landscapes. CHAMP Training

11 Legislation Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Areas Act 1979 Highways Act 1980 Heritage Act 1983 Planning (Conservation Areas and Listed Buildings) Act 1990 Treasure Act 1996 Hedgerow Regulations 1997 Highways (Environmental Impact Assessment) Regulations 2007 Planning Act 2008 Forthcoming Heritage Protection legislation and regulations c. 2010 ….? (Not, you immediately notice, the Town and Country Planning Acts …) CHAMP Training

12 Government Policy PPG15 Planning and the Historic Environment (1994) PPG16 Archaeology and Planning (1990) The HA adheres to the guidance in these documents (so far as legislative differences allow) and relies upon them in Public Inquiries etc. and incorporates them in HA advice documents These PPGs will require complete revision, as will the elements that rely on them in HA advice. Planning Policy Statement PPS15 (in draft) will replace both PPGs. The HA signed a Memorandum of Understanding with English Heritage in 2006 which ratified these commitments English Heritage published Heritage At Risk in 2008, updated each year, and it contains assets owned by the HA CHAMP Training

13 Care of Government owned cultural heritage assets The mandatory Protocol for the Care of the Government’s Historic Estate (2003 DCMS) requires all govt. departments and agencies to: nominate a conservation officer use consultants and contractors with appropriate expertise commission regular condition surveys develop site-specific management guidance implement a planned programme of repairs and maintenance protect buildings at risk safeguard historic buildings that are in course of disposal comply with the non-statutory notification procedures for Crown bodies ensure that the design quality of any new work enhances the historic environment prepare quadrennial conservation reports CHAMP Training

14 HA Strategy A New Deal for Transport: “better stewardship of the nation’s cultural … heritage” Transport 2010 The 10 Year Plan: “a transport system that makes less impact on the environment” Aim: “To contribute to sustainable development” Objective: “To minimise the impact of the trunk road network on both the natural ands built environment” Cultural heritage: “To ensure trunk road projects incorporate an appropriate response to any effects on the historic environment, and respect the historic fabric of our landscape Highways Agency’s Strategic Plan 1998: CHAMP Training

15 HA Policies and commitments HA Business Plan 2009-10 “…. This year we will update our guidance on design solutions for archaeology, historic landscape and built heritage [DMRB10] and complete the population of the cultural heritage database and commence the development of cultural heritage management plans across all areas” HA Network Management Manual: Soft estate routine maintenance includes cultural heritage, with ref. to IAN 84/07 (EnvIS) HA Routine and Winter Service Code: defect definitions include damage to the environment, and situations “liable to leave the SoS in breach of one or more of his statutory duties”. Identification and verification of defects or lack of them is a duty for the Service Provider CHAMP Training

16 HA guidance and standards documents DMRB vol 10. Environmental Design. Section 1 and 2 will include a requirement for Environment Management Plans (March 2010). (Archaeology Section 6 revised 2000, CHAMP Guidance added 2007) DMRB vol 11 Environmental Assessment (Cultural Heritage section revised 2007) Assessing the Effect of Road Schemes on Historic Landscape Character (2007) IAN 84/07 EnvIS Guidance CHAMP Training

17 Why do we need CHAMPs? because our roads affect cultural heritage assets because cultural heritage costs the HA a significant amount, and efficient management will reduce costs

18 HA business and cultural heritage How do we affect cultural heritage? CHAMP Training

19 Scope of HA activities affecting cultural heritage Major Projects Local Network Management Schemes Maintenance Technical Projects CHAMP Training

20 Major Projects A64 Scampston, Yorks. Grade II Listed Bridge, Grade I Listed mansion, Grade II* Registered Capability Brown Park. CHAMP Training

21 Local Network Management Schemes These smaller schemes may have significant effects on cultural heritage: A45 Ryton Junction – major excavation at short notice, dispute with County Archaeologist, and EH intervention. Successful outcome. A45 Ryton Junction CHAMP Training

22 Maintenance (i) Routine maintenance and management has the potential to affect cultural heritage assets, eg: historic bridge repairs ditch cleaning vegetation control A38 Milestone Cornwall CHAMP Training

23 18 th century Listed Grade II building, whose dilapidated condition was brought to HA’s attention by local authority. Maintenance (ii) A556 Sandiways, Cheshire Gatehouse Tower CHAMP Training

24 Maintenance (iii) A1 Water Newton. Cambridge- shire, site of 57 Roman burials found in ditch cleaning Scheduled Monument CHAMP Training

25 What if cultural heritage issues are not effectively managed? HA can be held to account, legally and financially, for condition of protected assets, HA incurs unnecessary project costs and delays HA risks unnecessary friction with stakeholders and statutory advisors HA unable efficiently to manage its estate, Loss of credibility Ministerial embarrassment CHAMP Training

26 Good News M63 Stretford. 19th century Listed Grade II dovecot dismantled and reconstructed in Walkden Gardens, Sale. M5 Croombe Park. Siting of VMS and bund to maintain historic views.

27 Where we are A completed Level 1 Inventory loaded onto HAGIS Level 2 data collected and ready for upload to HAGIS Guidance published in DMRB 10 and IAN 84/07 A model CHAMP prepared by Area 7 Enhanced entry to 2010 Government’s Historic Estate Unit report

28 Next Steps Uploading Level 2 into HAGIS DMRB 10 Section 1 and 2 EnvIS Guidance and Go Live Proposed HA Heritage Report Roll out CHAMPs by all MACs, DBFO Co.s

29 Final word The HA’s roads themselves are increasingly recognised as potential historic assets, with the 1950s bridges on the M1 considered for listing, and a stretch of the first motorway near Preston being included in Lancashire County Council’s Historic Environment Record. This will be a challenge for the future.
