The immovable object contains, together with the site it belongs to, all information that is specific to a cultural heritage monument. The immovable object cannot exist without a site. I.e., a burial ground makes up a site, while a burial mound makes up an immovable object. For cultural heritage from recent times, such as buildings protected by individual order, the site may be just one single protected building, several protected buildings, or one or several protected buildings and/or areas around them (such as parks and gardens), with individual protection orders. Immovable objects are cultural heritage objects that have a natural cohesiveness within the same site. Any site must have at least one immovable object within its delimitation, but may potentially have an infinite number of associated immovable objects.
The municipalities must take archaeological cultural heritage into consideration when developing all kinds of plans. The municipalities need to take into consideration archaeological cultural heritage, as well as post-medieval cultural heritage that is protected through individual order or regulation. Automatically protected cultural heritage objects that are covered by municipal planning must be marked as protected zone D in the maps. In building matters it is important to take into consideration protected buildings and their surroundings. This dataset also contains buildings and other cultural heritage objects that are protected according to the Plan and building act, or that are considered important cultural heritage objects by municipalities. This allows for a comparative use of the data.
