Listed building consent: when do you need it and how do you get it?

​We will explore listed building consent requirements and procedures in achieving them through the use of RIBA Plan of Work 2013.

This seminar will explore listed building consent requirements, procedures in achieving them, through the use of RIBA Plan of Work 2013. Since carrying out work to a listed building without consent is technically a criminal offence, it is important to have a good understanding of what does and what does not require consent.

Subjects covered in this session will include:

Listed Building

  • What is it?
  • When did it start?

Primary Legislation in England and Wales

  • What buildings does it apply to?
  • Which parts of the building does it apply to?
  • Are all parts of the building treated the same?
  • Significance and sensitivity analysis

LBC process:

  • What works need LBC?
  • What works don’t need it?
  • How do you get it?
  • How long does it take?
  • What does it cost?
  • Relation to other legislation?
  • NPPF Guidance and advice
  • Beneficial use
  • Historic England and other guidance
  • Buildings, historic artefacts and archaeology: conservation is not the same as preservation.
  • Overview in relation to the RIBA Plan of Work.

The seminar will include a workshop on how to use Heritage Gateway to identify heritage assets near your site, and what to do with that information.
