The historic environment includes below and above ground archaeological remains, historic buildings and historic parks and landscapes. This can include human activity from prehistoric times to the Cold War.

Our Historic Environment team maintains the Hertfordshire Historic Environment Record (HER) and provides specialist advice on land management matters.

Please note that the team does not provide conservation advice regarding listed buildings and conservation areas. The appropriate district or borough council should be contacted for assistance.
