Can I do emergency work to a listed building?
Emergency work can be carried out to a listed building without prior consent providing you can subsequently prove all of the following:
- That the works were urgently necessary in the interest of safety or health or for the preservation of the building
- It was not practical to secure public safety or health or preserve the building by works of repair or temporary support or shelter
- That the work was limited to the minimum measures immediately necessary
- That notice in writing justifying in detail the work was given to us as soon as reasonably practicable
