Statistics for protected rock art by year and name of protective instruments for Scotland

The request was successful.

Dear Historic Environment Scotland,

I would like to make a request under the freedom of information (FOI) act for a dataset in spreadsheet or csv form detailing each identified panel/single motif of rock art (e.g., cup(s); cups and rings or grooves, groove-marked, carved or incised rock, or rock scribing or carving) that has any form of protection in Scotland, the name of the protective instrument (e.g., statute, framework, policy), and the year the rock art was first protected by the said instrument(s).

I am aware of the following protective instruments in Scotland; please let me know if others exist that would protect rock art regardless of whether any rock art is currently being protected by them.

1. Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) (Scotland) Act 1997
2. Historic Environment Scotland Policy Statement (HESPS)
3. Managing Change in the Historic Environment series of non-statutory guidance notes about managing change in the historic environment

I would prefer to receive this information electronically.

If one part of this request can be answered sooner than others, please send that information first followed by any subsequent data. If FOI requests of a similar nature already exist, then could you please include your responses to those requests.

If you need any clarification then please email me. Under your section 16 duty to provide advice and assistance I would expect you to contact me if you find this request unmanageable in any way so we can negotiate how best to proceed.

I would be grateful if you could confirm in writing that you have received this request, and I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.

Sincerely,
Myra Giesen
