Heritage Recording Reports create a record of what exists prior to alterations and forms part of the Historic Environment Record.
Why is a Heritage Recording Report Required
A Council may require heritage recording as part of the planning process. Recording is also necessary when a condition is attached to a relevant Planning Permission or Listed Building Consent.
The NPPF [at 199] suggests that local planning authorities should make information about heritage assets publicly accessible. Such recording reports form part of the Historic Environment Record and deposited with a local museum or other public depository.

Your Heritage Recording Report
Theatre and Heritage can provide you with a Recording Report that will satisfy the Council’s requirements. It will adopt the Level stipulated by the Planning Condition normally Historic England’s Levels 1 to 4.
A report will usually include a written description and a full historical and architectural analysis of the asset, supported by drawings, photographic evidence, or research in documentary sources, or both.
