Applying for Listed Building Consent
Applications for listed building consent can be submitted
using National Standard
Application Forms or by
Making an On-line Application.
How much will it cost?
There is no fee payable for making a Listed Building Consent
application. There is however a hidden cost in the level of
drawn detail and supporting information, such as a
Design and Access Statement,
and in the majority of cases this will require a
registered architect or chartered building surveyor.
Where a planning application is submitted in
parallel with an application for listed building consent, a single,
combined statement should address the requirements of both. The
combined statement should address the elements required in relation
to a planning application in the normal way and the additional
requirements in relation to listed building consent..
The design and access statement should explain the
design principles and concepts that have been applied to the scale,
layout and appearance characteristics of a proposal. A design and
access statement relating to listed building consent should include
a brief explanation of how the design has taken account of the
special architectural interest of the building including the
• the historic and special
architectural importance of the building
• the particular physical
features of the building that justify its designation as a listed
• the building’s
The statement will need to explain the approach to
ensuring that the historic and special architectural importance of
the listed building is preserved or enhanced. Where an aspect of
the design has the potential to affect this adversely, the
statement should explain why it is necessary, and what measures
have been taken to minimise its impact.
