You will need to apply for listed building consent if either of the following cases apply:

• you want to demolish a listed building
• you want to carry out works to either extend or alter the exterior or interior of a listed building and these works are likely to affect its character as a building of special architectural or historic interest

You may also need listed building consent for any works to buildings which are deemed to be curtilage listed buildings. These are separate structures built before 1948 for a purpose ancillary to that of the principal listed building, and in the same ownership at the date of listing.

If in any doubt as to whether consent is required for your intended works, you are advised to check the position carefully with our planning team, as it is a criminal offence to carry out work which needs listed building consent without obtaining it beforehand.
