This is the general typology of the scheduled feature.
There are seven basic categories under which all scheduled
sites,areas and buildings are classified.
Each of the categories contains a number of typologies in
which the scheduled feature may be grouped. The groups vary
depending under which Category they fall.
Features vary greatly and usually give a one word description
of the protected site. The same feature may form part of
different types or categories.
Degree of Protection
The Degree of Protection varies depending under which category
it falls. Grades 1, 2 and 3 are used for built structures,
Class A, B and C are used for archaeological sites or areas
while Level 1, 2 and 3 are used for Ecology or Geology. The
higher the grade given, the higher the importance.
