Like listed buildings, Scheduled Monuments are subject to greater planning controls and any works carried out within the scheduled area require Scheduled Monument Consent. Applications for such consent are made to the Secretary of State.

A number of other monuments within this area are of archaeological significance but are not scheduled.
The Buckinghamshire archaeologists have drawn up a list identifying these sites, which are referred to as Archaeological Notification Sites. When planning applications are received which could affect an Archaeological Notification Site, the Council will seek the advice of the Buckinghamshire archaeologists.
