Birmingham has a wealth of buildings that have been statutory listed by the Secretary of State as listed buildings. These vary greatly in age, size and type and any alterations to them will require Listed Building Consent.
Listed Building Consent is required not only for extensions and external alterations, but also internal alterations, adaptions to fixtures and fittings, cleaning of the external fabric, repair to external elevations, works to windows and alterations to outbuildings and boundary walling.
Before undertaking any work it is advised that you contact the city council’s conservation officers who will advise you if a Listed Building Consent is required. Should work be undertaken in the absence of a Listed Building Consent this is classed as a criminal offence and may be the subject of prosecution.
Common works proposed to listed building often affect their windows and the approach taken by the council is set out in the document below.
