Listed Building (Certificate of Lawfulness of Proposed Works)
Certificate of Lawfulness of Proposed Works to a Listed Building
Guidance on certificate of lawfulness of proposed works to a listed building
It is possible to establish whether proposed works to a listed building would be lawful ie they would not affect the character of the listed building as a building of special architectural or historic interest and therefore, would not require listed building consent. Please note that this form cannot be submitted in respect of works which have already been carried out.
Certificates of lawfulness of proposed works are not the same as lawful development certificates. The former are part of the listed building consent regime; the latter are granted under the planning permission system. The grant of a certificate of lawfulness of proposed works does not affect any requirement to obtain planning permission for the proposed works.
