Any work that you plan to do on a listed building, including extending, demolition and anything that may affect the character as a building of special interest, will require Listed Building Consent, irrespective of whether normal planning permission is required or not. This will include any structural repair work that is required to restore the stability and strength of the building. The consent is either determined by the local planning authority or in some circumstances, the Secretary of State. Failure to obtain such consent is a criminal offence. We can provide the technical support that you require to obtain consent, and negotiate with the local authority heritage representatives, on your behalf.
