Advice Note 4: Tall Buildings

Historic England is seeking views on revisions to the existing Advice Note on how to take account of the historic environment when planning for tall buildings.

The draft Advice Note takes into account changes to the National Planning Policy Framework, and other documents such as the National Design Guide, as well as changing technology for visualising proposed tall buildings. The update also includes a greater focus on plan-led approaches throughout, extended sections on design and the efficient use of land, and clear case studies.

The new edition of this Advice Note will ultimately replace the 2015 HEAN on Tall Buildings.

Historic England is interested in your comments on the revised text:
