Listed building Consent

You will need to apply for listed building consent if you want to demolish a listed building, or if you want to alter or extend it in a way that affects its character as a building of special architectural or historic interest.

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

What are designated and non-designated heritage assets?

Designated heritage assets include scheduled monuments, listed buildings, world heritage sites, shipwrecks, historic parks and gardens, national parks and conservation areas.

Non-designated heritage assets are other buildings and sites that also have some archaeological, architectural, artistic or historic interest, either locally or nationally.
