You will need to apply for listed building consent if either of the following cases apply; you want to demolish a listed building; you want to alter or extend a listed building in a manner which would affect its character as a building of special architectural or historic interest; you may also need listed building consent for any works to separate buildings within the grounds of a listed building. Check the position with the Council - it is a criminal offence to carry out work which needs listed building consent without obtaining it beforehand. Find out more about listed building consent
Applications for listed building consent should be submitted in accordance with the requirements in this checklist. If not, the application may be declared invalid and not determined or processing may be delayed.
If the application is submitted electronically one copy of the form and each of the drawings, plans and documentation will be required but if the application is submitted in paper form 2 copies (1 original and 1 copy) of the form, drawings, plans and documentation are required. If samples of materials are submitted, only one sample of each of the materials will be required.
Drawings should include information clearly stating the orignal size of the paper and include a scale bar indicating a minimum 0-10 metres. This is to enable them to be accurately read online.
