If you wish to carry out works on a Listed Building, the process is similar to that of a standard planning application but more detail will be required by the Local Authority. I can advise you of implications involved with any proposed alterations (external or internal).
Listed Buildings have additional protection in law. You can make changes, but you may need to apply for “Listed Building Consent”, and you will need to be careful when carrying out work that could affect the character of the building.
You will need to apply for listed building consent if either of the following cases apply:
- You wish to demolish a listed building
- You wish to alter or extend a listed building in a manner which would affect it’s character as a building of special architectural or historic interest.
