Cressing Temple Barns, Braintree
The importance of evidence based planning and the role of historic environmental records are emphasised in PPS5 Planning and the historic environment, and in the National Planning Policy Framework. The Essex historic enviroment record (EHER) is the most comlete inventory of the archaeological sites, historic buildings, historic landscapes and features and significant finds from the county. For many years the EHER has been available for consultation at County Hall, Chelmsford. However, in recent years this invaluable resource has also become available online. The course will explain the background be the creation and purpose of the EHER and outline the different kinds of information that it contains such as database and photographic records, modern and historic mapping, published and unpublished reports. The course will explore the various ways in which the EHER can be used and during the breaks the attendees will have the opportunity to search the online versions of the EHER.
