Material Consideration
A material consideration, in the United Kingdom, is a process in planning law in which the decision maker when assessing an application for development must consider in deciding the outcome of an application. Material considerations in the past have included issues regarding traffic, wildlife, economic impacts and the historical interest of the area. In considering an application for development, decision makers often consult local development plans and Planning Policy Guidance Notes to determine the success of a proposal. Issues such as loss of a view, or effect on property values are not material considerations. The Campaign to Protect Rural England advises that Material Considerations are factors that will be taken into account when a decision on a planning application or appeal is reached

Ancient Monument
In British law, an ancient monument is an early historical structure or monument (e.g. an archaeological site) worthy of preservation and study due to archaeological or heritage interest. The term differs from the American term "National Monument" in that U.S. National Monuments are comparatively few in number and may include natural formations; British ancient monuments are by definition man-made. Ancient monuments are defined by the Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Areas Act 1979[1] as(a) any scheduled monument (of which there are currently more than 20,000[2]); and (b) any other monument which in the opinion of the Secretary of State is of public interest by reason of the historic, architectural, traditional, artistic or archaeological interest attaching to it.See also[edit]English Heritage Historic preservation Scheduled monumentReferences[edit]^ "Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Areas Act 1979"
