Heritage and Planning

The Brecon Beacons National Park Authority plays a vitally important role in securing the conservation of the historic environment, whilst ensuring that it accommodates and remains responsive to present day needs.  This is achieved by working in conjunction with other bodies and organisations such as the Welsh Government, Cadw and the Welsh Archaeological Trusts.

Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas are protected through the planning regime. The areas where planning controls are affected by built heritage are:

  • Conservation Area Consent

Archaeology

The Welsh Government recognises the potential threat to archaeological remains posed by development, and the desirability of preserving archaeological remains and their setting is a material consideration in determining a planning application.
