Listed Buiding Consent is also required where works are carried out within the curtilage of a listed building which often covers a wider scope than the physical or ownership boundaries.
Appointing experienced planning and conservation professionals at the outset of any project is essential to minimise delays, costs and to ensure the appropriate consents are secured as failure to do so could result in a criminal conviction.
Liaising with the Local Planning Authority Conservation Officer is an essential part of the process to discuss whether planning permission is required and what might be acceptable.
In considering granting Listed Building Consent, the LPA will give attention “to the desirability of preserving the building, its setting and those features which make it special”. For more information please see the Historic England website or contact us for more information.
