Please ask us for advice before starting work
You must apply for and receive consent before a listed building is demolished, extended or altered in any way that affects its character, inside or out, including:
- changing windows or doors
- putting up satellite dishes and burglar alarms
- altering internal walls or sub-dividing rooms
- alterations to features like fireplaces and cornicing
Carrying out unauthorised work to a listed building is a criminal offence which can lead to a fine or prison sentence and you may have to revert the building to how it was.
