Listed Building and Conservation Area Applications

Listed Building Consent: Required for all works affecting buildings that are listed as being of special architectural or historic interest, or works which affect their setting. 

Conservation Area Consent: Required for demolition of buildings or walls in Conservation Areas.
Please Note:  From 1 October 2013 applications for planning permission to demolish buildings or walls in Conservation Areas should be made on a general planning application form. When accompanying an application for planning permission for works or extension to a dwelling these works no longer require a separate form and must be included in the description of the general or householder planning application form.

Larger Home Extensions: Neighbour Consultation Scheme

For a period of six years, between 30 May 2013 and 30 May 2019, househoulders will be allowed to build larger single-storey rear extensions to a dwelling house under permitted development, providing the dwelling house is not on article 1(5) land* nor on a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Size limits will double from 4 metres to 8 metres for detached houses, and from 3 metres to 6 metres for all other houses.

 * = 'Article 1(5) land' - this is land within a National Park, the Broads, an area of outstanding natural beauty, an area designated as a conservation area, and land within World Heritage Sites.
