They are unlikely to be appropriate or inexpensive management tools for most cultural heritage assets and are equally likely to require a set of evidence that is not similar to those required by the current classified building permit regime. This report is the result of a study on the use and effectiveness of classified building management guidelines, as defined in the guide «Developing Guidelines for the Management of Listed Buildings» published in June 1995. and its potential to help streamline the listed building permit system by making it more efficient to help reduce barriers to competitiveness. The Business and Regulatory Reform Act, passed at the end of April 2013 by the Royal Family, provides a framework for significant legislative changes for listed buildings and protected areas. It respects a government commitment to the historic environment policy, published in December 2001, The Historic Environment: A Force for or Future, which examines the current impact of management agreements and their future potential. In a broader context, this can be seen as a timely contribution to the review of cultural heritage protection legislation and other recent initiatives announced by the Minister of Culture, Culture and Sport in November 2002, which examine the existing legal framework and guidelines for the protection of the historic environment. Cultural Heritage Partnership Agreement: This measure allows owners of listed buildings to enter into a voluntary management agreement with the local planning authority and all other interested parties entitled to grant permission for certain works and specify work that would not prejudice the particular interest. This should help owners of large buildings and listed land with routine maintenance and management obligations. Certificate of legality: Like the building permit, owners can request formal confirmation that the proposed works do not affect the particular interest of a listed building and therefore do not require a classified building permit. These quotas are valid for a period of 10 years and are intended to avoid unnecessary building permit applications and to help owners avoid the risk of doing illegitimate work.
Certificates of immunity: Under the new amendments, these certificates can be requested independently of a plan request. The reforms aim to reduce the bureaucratic challenges faced by owners of listed buildings in England, who wish to carry out work that does not affect the particular interest of buildings, without weakening the overall protection of these buildings of national importance. It is essential that they contribute to greater clarity, which is always useful when it comes to the many shades of grey that exist under the classified building permit system. All measures to streamline the planning system are welcomed and these measures should be effective for both listed building owners and developers. Designation of listed buildings: a new power to exclude from the list certain works that are related to the building or within the structure and which are not of particular interest and to designate a part or characteristic of the main building classified as not of particular interest is clearer. The aim is to reduce the number of unnecessary construction applications for curies and classified works that are not of particular interest. In this sense, the cultural heritage reforms contained in the law aim to streamline the procedure for authorizing buildings and classified planning for development in the historical environment.
