Listed building consent

If your house is a listed building, in addition to planning permission and building regulation approval, you will need to apply for Listed Building Consent.

Listed Building Consent is needed to alter, extend or demolish a listed building and other structures and buildings within the grounds of the listed building. It also includes works to the interior of a building.

It is a criminal offence to carry out works to listed buildings without consent even if you did not know that the building was listed. Carrying out unauthorised work is punishable by a fine or a prison sentence we can require you to put the building back the way it was.
