An eighth report on Local Authority Staff Resources

Front cover for Eighth Report on Local Authority Staff Resources

By Sarah Reilly

Figures collected early in 2016 show that the number of historic advice specialists in local authorites had fallen over the previous 12 months, whilst the workload in terms of  number of planning application decisions and Listed Building Consent decisions had grown.

This report has been produced by Historic England in partnership with the Association of Local Government Archaeological Officers (ALGAO), the forum representing archaeologists working for local authorities and national parks and advising on all aspects of the historic environment; and the Institute of Historic Building Conservation (IHBC),the UK's lead professional body for built and historic environment practitioners working for the conservation, care, regeneration and future of our valued places.
