Historic Environment Record services act as consultees and advisors to the planning process, and are also frequently consulted by archaeological and environmental contractors and consultants, by the general public, and by students and academics. All formal consultations need to be managed, documented and archived. The HBSMR Consultation Module is provided to meet these needs. A Consultation record details the stages of the consultation process, the actions undertaken and the resulting outcomes. Cross-references to other HBSMR data may be created and maintained. This module is normally used by casework officers and HER officers.
