My business is in a listed building

Apply for listed building consent

We would always recommend you contact us before you make an application.

We can advise you informally whether your proposals are likely to be accepted. This could save you time and money.

It is also nearly always best to employ an architect who is used to working with listed buildings at an early stage for work on extensions and alterations involving historic fabric.

He or she will have the necessary skills to be aware of where likely difficulties and sensitive areas will be and can draw up sketch proposals, if necessary, for discussion with officers before hard and fast decisions are taken.

We deal with the majority of listed building consent cases and will give you the appropriate form for making your application (there is no fee for such applications).

Your application will need to include enough information to show clearly what you intend to do, with detailed scaled drawings and photographs.

You can also download listed building consent application forms from the Planning Portal website.
