Historic Buildings

An historic building is normally one which has architectural or historic interest or significance. Its importance may be local or national and may be a consequence of the building's age, built form or location. It may also result from its connection with a person or persons of note, or with local or national events.

If the buildings on a site are Listed, it is necessary to provide the local planning authority with sufficient information to enable an assessment to be made of the likely impact of the proposals on the building, its significant architectural features and its setting. There are also particular obligations of care on the part of an owner.

The practice is widely experienced in dealing with historic or, more particularly, Listed Buildings which are the subject of Government legislation for their protection and to policies contained in local planning policies.
