The Department for Culture, Media and Sport will consider a request to review a listing providing the request is accompanied by new evidence relating specifically to the architectural or historic interest of the building.
Evidence about a building's condition and cost of repairing or maintaining it or redevelopment plans can not be considered by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport. If you want a building to be listed or a listing to be reconsidered, you must write to:
Department for Culture, Media and Sport
Listing, Archaeology and World Heritage Branch
2-4 Cockspur Street
London SW1Y 5DH
You do not need to be the owner of a building. The Department for Culture, Media and Sport does not normally consider a request for de-listing when:
- There is a current application for listed building consent relating to the building
- There is an appeal against refusal of consent
- If any legal action is being taken the local authority
Any request for a listing review should be accompanied by:
- A justification for adding (or deleting) a building
- Location plan
- Clear up-to-date photographs
- Any other historical information on the building
- There is no requirement to consult the owners before a building is listed but unless an inspector is aware of a specific threat, they will contact the owner or leave a visiting card.
There is also no right of appeal against a listing and no right to compensation for loss of redevelopment opportunities.
