      Regulation 14

      NOTICE THAT A BUILDING HAS BECOME LISTED



      IMPORTANT -


      THIS COMMUNICATION AFFECTS YOUR PROPERTY


      PLANNING (LISTED BUILDINGS AND CONSERVATION AREAS) ACT 1990


      BUILDINGS OF SPECIAL ARCHITECTURAL OR HISTORIC INTEREST

        To:

        NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the building known as            situated in            has on            19 been included in a list of buildings of special architectural or historic interest compiled by the [Secretary of State for Environment] [Secretary of State for Wales] under section 1 of the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990.

        Date            19            [Town Clerk] [Clerk of the Council] [Chief Executive]

        Note

        Listing of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest

        The above notice is addressed to you as owner or occupier of the building named, which has been included in one of the lists of buildings of special architectural or historic interest under section 1 of the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 by the [Secretary of State for the Environment] [Secretary of State for Wales]. The lists are compiled by the Secretary of State as a statutory duty after consultation with [the Historic Buildings and Monuments Commission for England and with such other][5] persons or bodies as appear to him appropriate as having special knowledge of, or interest in, buildings of architectural or historic interest.

        This notice does not call for any action on your part unless you propose at any time to demolish the building or to do any works (either to the exterior or the interior) which would affect its character. In that event you will need to seek "listed building consent", that is to say, the consent of the local planning authority (the            Council) to the work you wish to do.

        You should however note that it is an offence to carry out any of these works without obtaining listed building consent. A conviction for this offence could result in a fine or even imprisonment. Nevertheless where works which were urgently necessary in the interests of safety or of health or for the preservation of the building were carried out without consent it is a defence to prove that-

           (a) it was not practicable to secure safety or health or the preservation of the building by works of repair or works for affording temporary support or shelter;

           (b) the works carried out were limited to the minimum measures immediately necessary; and

           (c) notice in writing justifying in detail the carrying out of the works was given to the local planning authority as soon as reasonably practicable.

        Certain buildings are exempt from the requirement to obtain listed building consent, notably ecclesiastical buildings which are for the time being used for ecclesiastical purposes (but it should also be noted that this exemption does not apply to a building used or available for use as a residence by a minister of religion and that the exemption may be restricted or excluded by an order of the Secretary of State under section 60 of the 1990 Act).

        Although there is no statutory right of appeal as such against the listing of a building, you are not precluded at any time from writing to the Secretary of State claiming that the building should cease to be listed on the ground that it is not in fact of special architectural or historic interest; and any such claim, with the evidence supporting it, will be carefully considered by the Secretary of State in consultation with his statutory advisers. A guidance note on the procedure is available from the Secretary of State. In addition, where listed building consent is refused by a local planning authority or is granted subject to conditions, there is a right of appeal to the [Secretary of State for the Environment] [Secretary of State for Wales]; and one of the grounds for an appeal may be that the building is not of special architectural or historic interest.

        If at any time you propose to take any action which may affect the character of your building, you would be well advised to refer to the provisions of the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990, and of the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Regulations 1990 (S.I. 1990/1519). Further details can be obtained from your local planning authority.

    EXPLANATORY NOTE

    (This note is not part of the Regulations)

      These Regulations make procedural provision for applications for listed building consent, for conservation area consent, for the variation or discharge of conditions attached to listed building consents or conservation area consents, and for appeals in respect of these matters.

      The Regulations also provide for notices and for other procedural provisions in relation to listed buildings and buildings in conservation areas, and for the application and modification of legislation in relation to enforcement notices and conservation areas.

      The Regulations revoke and re-enact, with minor drafting amendments, the Town and Country Planning (Listed Buildings and Buildings in Conservation Areas) Regulations 1987 to take account of the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 which consolidated certain enactments relating to listed buildings and conservation areas.
