The Government and its heritage adviser, Historic England, help to protect Jewish sites within the planning system through:

  • advising the Secretary of State for DCMS on Listing and Scheduling;
  • statutory advice in relation to planning applications that may have an impact on the setting and character of listed synagogues, mikvah or other premises, and;
  • engagement with Jewish communities seeking to make changes to their built heritage or manage it more effectively.
