I've checked the Blue Book, Mynors, and indeed s.214 of the T&C Act but
still can't decide whether requirement to hold a register of 211 notices
also requires that it be a historical record or whether it should only
hold current notices (ie. before the 6 weeks is up). ...I'm about to
'recycle' some notices going back a decade and I'm not sure if I need a
record of them!>>

I'm not sure what, if any, formal guidance or regulation exists, but
given most Notices are valid for 2 years from date of serving, I'd have
thought that was an absolute minimum. We keep Notices for at least 5
years, longer if there's shelf space - you never know when something
crops up years later, and a record of site notes, or what work was
actually agreed / submitted can be very useful.
