Cultural Heritage Assets Management Plans (CHAMP)
Cultural Heritage Assets Management Plans (CHAMPs) are prepared by the HA, through MACs and some DBFOs, to protect and enhance the historic environment surrounding the Strategic Road Network.
A Cultural Heritage inventory, within the HA Environmental Information system (EnvIS) database, collects GIS based heritage data within and adjacent to HA estate, and it is accessible to people with a HA log through HAMIS.
The Agency stipulates the requirements for the preparation of Cultural Heritage Asset Management Plans (CHAMPs) in the Design Manual for Roads and Bridges Volume 10 Section 6.
The guidance reflects the Government’s mandatory requirements of the Protocol for the Care of the Government’s Historic Estate (Protocol DCMS, 2003), to which the Agency’s parent Department, the Department for Transport (DfT), is a signatory.
