Scheduling Selection Guide

This selection guide offers an overview of the sorts of archaeological monument or site associated with utilities which are likely to be deemed to have national importance, and for which of those scheduling may be appropriate. It aims to do two things: to set these within their historical context, and to give an introduction to the designation approaches employed.

There is inevitably some overlap with listing which is covered in a parallel (but separate) Utilities and Communications Structures selection guide which considers the selection of buildings of these types for listing. This guide thus covers those utility sites and structures which can, and have been, accorded protection through scheduling and it also sets out our current more integrated approach to the assessment of such sites.
