The ability to obtain the necessary statutory consents is imperative for you, as the property owner, before any works are carried out to either the building or the site. We have significant experience in discussing and negotiating with both the Local Authority Conservation and Planning Officers and the representatives from English Heritage with the aim of achieving a satisfactory outcome.
Listed Building Consent is required if you, as the owner of a building that is Listed, wish to demolish, alter or extend it in a way that affects its character or appearance as a building or site of special architectural or historic interest. This may involve the preparation of scaled drawings, reports and specifications of work that will need to accompany the statutory application. The application will be submitted to the Local Authority and we will help aid the process through negotiations with the Planning and Conservation Officers. We have a good working relationship with Councils throughout the South West and believe this helps us to achieve a successful outcome.
Scheduled Monument Consent is required from English Heritage before any work on a scheduled monument can commence. The submission of fully detailed drawings is required along with detailed schedules and specifications of work to enable English Heritage to determine and issue Consent. We are experienced in discussing the needs of your site with English Heritage and finding a way that meets the requirements of all the interested parties. We are also able to assist with obtaining consent for emergency works when a scheduled monument is at high risk and recently, in conjunction with English Heritage, undertook and obtained consent for emergency works within an eight week period. This close working relationship helped protect a scheduled monument from significant risk and collapse.
