Reflections On Proposed Changes To Planning

Posted by:

We all await the outcome of the Governments intervention and proposed changes to the planning system to see if it will eventually benefit our clients.  My own thoughts are that sadly it will be more about what will be permitted, such as green belt development, rather than the planning process very much as it was the last time the system was revised.

The Risks of Listed Properties

Are You Considering Buying a Grade 2* Listed Building?

ANY works that may materially affect to the importance of the listed building requires listed building consent. That means inside and out! If you carry out works that require listed building consent without getting it it is a criminal offence!

There are no hard and fast rules on what would and wouldn’t require consent as what is considered important varies from building to building. I can only advise that you speak to the conservation officer at your local council
