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.
This consent does not cover the removal or alteration of any currently hidden features of architectural or historic interest that may be revealed during the course of building works; removal or alteration of any such features may well require listed building consent. ÿ
Building Regs - Separate Approval
Separate approval for the works hereby granted consent may be required by the Building Act 1984 and the Building Regulations 2000 (as amended), and the grant of listed building consent does not imply that such approval will be given. The Director of Building Control, Town Hall, Hornton Street, W8 7NX should be consulted before works commence.
