As part of your application you will need to tell us about the environmental impacts you think your project will have. In this document we outline the environmental impacts we think are likely to be important on projects of differing sizes and type – and what we think it should be possible to achieve on each. We take into account how you respond to these guidelines in our decision making.

Essential for… Anyone with a heritage project involving capital or conservation work.
