If your property is Listed you will need to apply for listed building consent if:

  • you want to demolish a listed building or;
  • you want to alter or extend a listed building in a manner which would affect its character as a building of special architectural or historic interest.

You may also need listed building consent for any works to separate buildings within the grounds of a listed building.

If you are uncertain as to whether or not your property is listed, you can search for your property using our Interactive Map.

The best way of developing an application is through pre-application discussions with officers who can also advise on the level of information required.

For further information please refer to the Listed Buildings page on our website; in addition English Heritage offer a range of planning advice.

This must be an up-to-date Ordnance Survey based location plan at an appropriate scale, usually 1:1250 or 1:2500. In the case of large sites other drawing scales maybe appropriate.

The plan must show:

  • at least 2 main roads and all surrounding buildings or land;
  • the application site (the whole planning unit) ;
  • a north point;

The application site boundary should be edged clearly with a red line. It should include all land necessary to carry out the proposed development; for example, land required for access to the site from a public highway, visibility splays, landscaping, car parking and open areas around buildings.

A blue line should be drawn around any other land owned by the applicant, close to or adjoining the application site.

We will expect this to be on an A4 size plan or larger.
