Can I do emergency building work? 


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
