Listed Buildings & Conservation Areas
A listed building is a building of special architectural or historic interest and any proposed works of alteration or repair will require listed building consent from the Connexional Conservation Officer.
Similarly conservation areas are areas which have been designated for their special architectural and historic interest and any external work to buildings within these areas are subject to conservation area consent by the Connexional Conservation Officer.
When considering any works to listed building or non-listed buildings in conservation areas, it is strongly recommended that managing trustees contact the Connexional Conservation Officer at the earliest possible stage. These early discussions can help the managing trustees realise the suitability of the proposed work and at the same time help abide by the legal requirements.
