Where a building is ‘listed’, additional planning protections will apply in order to help protect and preserve its special architectural or historical interest.
Generally, listed building consent must be obtained for any works which will affect the special character of a listed building - including demolition, alteration or extension. It is therefore essential that you check whether listed building consent is needed where works to a listed building are contemplated, particularly as criminal sanctions can apply where the necessary consents are not properly obtained.
