Annex B: Monument Management
B10 Environment and Heritage Service provides advice on the management of scheduled monuments through an Inspector and a team of Field Monument Wardens, assigned to individual areas. The Wardens inspect scheduled monuments on a regular basis, reporting on their conditions and are available to discuss with owners measures for the improved management of sites. Management agreements can be made under Article 19 of the 1995 Order. Such agreements may be used to encourage the beneficial management of field monuments on agricultural land. They may run for an agreed number of years and can include pest and weed control and stock management.
