Listed Building Householder

Listed Building Householder Checklist and Form

Householder Applications are required if you want to extend your home or alter it in some way that requires permission. Listed building consent will also be required if you plan to undertake work to a listed building.

Top tip: If in doubt, ask. Carrying out works to a listed building without obtaining the necessary consents first is a criminal offence and risks prosecution.

Please download the Householder and Listed Building Consent Application Form (PDF) (opens in new window)

Please make sure your application includes the right information, or it will be judged as invalid.
