Relevant Demolition in a Conservation Area Guidance
Relevant Demolition in a Conservation Area
Guidance for relevant demolition in a conservation area.
The relevant demolition in a conversation area form should only be used for demolition of unlisted buildings in Conservation Areas. It is NOT required for the construction or alterations of properties within
conservation areas, NOR for the following demolition proposals:
- Demolition of a building with a volume not exceeding 115 cubic metres
- Demolition of a wall less than 1 metre high fronting a highway, waterway or open space
- Demolition of a wall less than 2 metres high in any other case
- Demolition of agricultural buildings constructed since 1st January 1914
In addition relevant demolition in a conservation area MAY be needed for partial demolition of a building but only where substantial demolition is involved.
If your proposal affects a Scheduled Ancient Monument, you will need to make an application to English Heritage for Scheduled Monument Consent.
