We would be obliged if you can provide us with details/maps in regards to Designated Areas of Archaeological Importance present within Moray Council under the legislation listed above as at 5th February 2018:
We would also prefer to receive this information in an electronic format, failing which in hard copy.
This information is exempt under Section 25 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002- Information otherwise available. This information should be sourced from Historic Environment Scotland, who maintain the original data set (and have responsibility for all monuments designated under the Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Areas Act 1979).
They hold the most up to date and detailed information. It is freely accessible and available to all via their website.
If the enquiry relates to those monuments in Moray Council ownership which are designated under the Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Areas Act 1979, then again the most accurate source of information will be Historic Environment Scotland.
