PLANNING

Planning for Listed Buildings

Any works intended or to be carried out on a listed building impacting on the appearance will require Listed Building Consent whether they require full Planning Permission or not. 

It is important to consult with your local planning authorities if you have any uncertainties relating to the listing status of a building, as it is a criminal offence to carry out any works without the correct consent. 

‘Special interest’ of a listed building may relate just as heavily to the layout of the building as it does the appearance. When considering works bear in mind that all fixtures in land-law terms are included in the listing.; this includes any object fixed to the building that would be included in the sale of a property.

*NOTE any building within the curtilage of the primary building named on the listing that pre dates 1948 (or potentially 01/01/1961 for listed entries that pre-date) are also protect by the listing given it is fixed to the land and is ancillary to the primary building.
