Listed buildings

When listed building consent is needed

Consent is required before a building can be demolished, extended or altered in any way that would affect its character - either inside or out. This can include buildings and structures that surround the property – for instance garden walls or outbuildings.

Contact the conservation and design team for advice before starting work. The types of projects that may need consent includes (not a comprehensive list):

  • changing windows or doors
  • putting in dormer windows or roof lights
  • putting up satellite dishes and burglar alarms
  • altering internal walls or sub-dividing rooms
  • any alterations to features like fireplaces and cornicing
  • paint the exterior of the property – this might require listed building consent especially if the building has not been painted before or if the proposed new colour affects the character and appearance of the building.
