Listed Building Reminder on Enforcement
You are reminded that no work should commence on implementing this Listed Building Consent until all matters, samples, and details reserved by condition have been submitted to, and approved by, this local planning authority. It is an offence to carry out work to a Listed Building unless all such conditions have been complied with. Any proposed departure from the works specified in the approved drawings should be brought to the attention of the planning department for further consideration before the work is carried out. The Council will use its enforcement powers, including use of Breach of Condition Notices or Prosecution, to ensure compliance with conditions and prevent harm to the special historic character and historic interest of Listed Buildings. You are advised that there is currently a maximum fine of o20,000 if the offence is dealt with summarily, and if the offence is dealt with by indictment the fine is unlimited.


Retain Original Fabric of Building
You are reminded that the original historic fabric of the listed building should be retained unless specifically authorised for removal by the Council as part of a listed building consent. Historic fabric which must be retained would include lath and plaster ceilings and walls, floor boards, original skirting boards, dado rails, cornice, fireplaces, staircases, and any other surviving historic fabric. Where these elements are in poor condition, repair and restoration could be undertaken by competent workmen, with the minimum amount of intervention to the historic fabric. You are reminded that the installation of recessed ceiling lights and speakers in most cases will require listed building consent. Any proposals for these particular works must be first approved by the Council as part of a listed building consent before they are installed within the listed building. Use the following link to see how advice can be obtained: Planning Advice Service Advice can be sought if a problem has occurred during consented works, but it is clearly preferable to seek advice at as early a stage as possible.
