How do I apply for listed buildings consent? 


You will need to fill in a listed building application form. The listed building consent process is very similar to the planning process and for most cases it will take eight weeks to process an application.

Advice to owners or developers and their professional agents is an important part of the listed building application process and our Conservation Officer is available to discuss your proposal before you submit your application.

Advice can be given on appropriate alterations and extensions to historic buildings. Except for the most simple applications it is advisable to employ an agent who is familiar with the policies and procedures of the council.

If you are in any doubt, you should check with the Conservation Officer if planning permission or listed building consent is needed before starting any work to a listed building.
