Draft Battlefield design guidance

This draft document guides the implementation of local and national heritage policies in the assessment of development proposals which might affect the significance of the registered Battlefield of Shrewsbury, including its setting. 

It seeks to manage the impacts of development on the significance of the registered battlefield and its setting by: 

  • recognising the risk to the Registered Battlefield from development
  • providing advice on how heritage policies and guidance should influence development 
  • providing advice on the appropriate level of heritage Assessment for development
  • producing design guidance to avoid or reduce individual or cumulative impacts of development
