A Charter for the Greater London Archaeological Advisory Service (GLAAS)

This Charter sets out how Historic England will provide archaeological advice and the Historic Environment Record for Greater London.

The GLAAS Charter explains how we handle requests for pre-application advice and how GLAAS should be consulted on planning applications; it covers our advice on matters of policy and management of the archaeological resource; and it explains how we maintain the Greater London Historic Environment Record and work in partnerships with others.

It replaces the previous version published in 2017.
