GOVERNMENT BODY


Formerly known as the Environment and Heritage Service, the Historic Environment Division of Northern Ireland's DOE is responsible for the protection of the historic environment, including monuments and buildings. Since April 2015 most planning responsibilities have been transferred to local authorities, including listed building and conservation area consent applications.


The Historic Monuments Unit of the division maintains Northern Ireland's 194 monuments in state care and records, designates, conserves and promotes historic monuments. It does this through maintaining databases on sites and monuments, advising on planning applications that affect them, and monitoring and commissioning archaeological investigations.


The Historic Buildings Unit of the division produces and maintains 'the list'; advises the planning service on planning applications that affect listed buildings; provides professional advice on alterations and technical information on repairs; where appropriate provides grant aid for approved schemes; promotes awareness of historic buildings e.g. through organising European Heritage Days.
