Managing Change in the Historic Environment: External Walls

This document is part of a series of non-statutory guidance notes about managing change in the historic environment. They explain how to apply the policies in the Historic Environment Policy for Scotland.

This guidance note sets out the principles that apply to altering the external walls of historic buildings. It should inform planning policies and the determination of applications relating to the historic environment.

We regularly review and update our policy advice and guidance. When we propose any changes, we hold public consultations to ensure your opinions can help to shape the guidance we provide. Find out more about our current consultations.
