Remarkable Heritage Sites
The remarkable heritage sites were created by the law of 7 July 2016 on freedom of creation, architecture and heritage. This device aims to protect and highlight the architectural, urban and landscape heritage of our territories.
Notable heritage sites are: towns, villages or neighbourhoods whose conservation, restoration, rehabilitation or development is of historical, architectural, archaeological, artistic or landscape interest.”
Rural areas and landscapes which together with these towns, villages or neighbourhoods form a coherent whole or which are likely to contribute to their conservation or development can be classified in the same way.
Remarkable heritage sites were created to clarify protection for urban and landscape heritage.
The system makes it possible to clearly identify the economic stakes on the samerritory.
These issues are reflected in a land management plan that can take two forms:
- a backup and enhancement plan (planning document)
- an architecture and heritage development plan (easement)
Each of them is a factor of readability for project promoters and inhabitants.
Remarkable heritage sites replace the old onespositive protection:
- safeguarded sectors,
- architectural, urban and landscape heritage protection areas (ZPPAUP),
- Architectural and Heritage Development Areas (AVAP).
The latter were automatically transformed by law into remarkable heritage sites.
More than 800 remarkable heritage sites were created on July 8, 2016.
Planning document : document at the level of a grouping of municipalities or a municipality which reflects a global planning and town planning project for the territory. The planning document therefore lays down the rules for the planning and use of land to meet the needs of housing, public facilities, economic, commercial, tourist or cultural activities. This document can be consulted by all the inhabitants at the town hall or on the website of the municipality.
Utility easement Public utility easements, established by a public authority for the public interest, constitute administrative limitations on the right to property. They may directly affect land use or constructability and must therefore be annexed to the current planning document.
