Historic Building Recording, otherwise referred to as Archaeological Building Recording involves producing a record of an historic building or structure prior to development or alteration. The level of recording required usually depends on the significance of the structure, as well as the proposed scheme, with the levels required based upon Historic England’s Understanding Historic Buildings: A Guide to Good Recording Practice (link here).
Building recording is usually undertaken as a pre-commencement Condition within a planning application, or as part of Listed Building consent. Under the National Planning Policy Framework, structures deemed as non-designated heritage assets (sites of historic or archaeological significance that have been identified, but do not meet the criteria for designation, eg being Listed) as well as Listed structures will usually require an element of recording.
