Heritage at Risk
The Conservation and Archaeology Team maintains a 'Heritage at Risk Register' (PDF, 3.3MB) for the borough. This list seeks to identify heritage assets at risk, monitor them and take action to safeguard the significant heritage that give Milton Keynes it unique character.
Heritage assets are prioritised so that action is taken on those buildings at the greatest risk of loss. Where a heritage asset is identified as requiring works, the Conservation and Archaeology Team will contact the owners to provide advice and agree the course of action required to safeguard the asset. Should owners refuse to take the necessary steps to secure either the short term or longer term preservation of the building, the Local Planning Authority will use the powers available to it under the 1990 Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act.
Milton Keynes Council is able to undertake enforcement action against works to heritage assets where consent was required but not obtained.
