CONCORDAT GOVERNING THE LOCATION AND
CONSTRUCTION OF BUILDING FOR MINISTRY OF
DEFENCE AT LARKHILL

(As agreed with MPBW, Ancient Monuments Division)

The Ministry of Defence have a requirement for a School of
Artillery at Larkhill for as long as can be foreseen. In addition
to the buildings now being erected, this Army Establishment
may require further buildings or structures. However, it is the
long term objective of the Ministry of Public Building and
Works that no buildings or large tree plantings should be
visible from Stonehenge. In furtherance of this objective, and
to permit any necessary further development of the Army
Establishment to be planned without further consultation on
this aspect. It is agreed:

a.
On the M of D owned land south of the line
described in Annex A (but excluding
Durrington Downs Farm where, however,
MPBW shall be consulted about the siting and
character of any replacements or additions), no
new buildings or structures shall be erected
except additions to existing buildings; these
additions not to exceed 50 sq metres in area
and 5 metres in height above ground level. All
new building work shall be screened by trees if
visible from Stonehenge.

b.
Any proposal for a building of more than
9 metres above ground level to be erected
North of the line as described and which
would not be completely hidden from
Stonehenge by ground contours shall be
the subject of specific agreement between
the Departments.

c.
The Ministry of Defence will take no action
which would increase the obtrusion of existing
buildings and structures on the landscape as
seen from Stonehenge.
d.
The Ministry of Defence will take account
when considering requirements for new
building in the Larkhill area, the effect which
such development might have in prolonging
the life of existing buildings which are visible
from Stonehenge.
