Timely Consultation Helped a Client Correct a Listing
AB Heritage was recommended to a client who had been experiencing some heritage related planning issues.
The consented demolition of a former listed building on the site and its replacement on the same footprint had taken place in 1990. However, the National Heritage List for England had not been updated. Therefore, planning issues were encountered as the replacement building was thought to be the former listed building. However,
AB Heritage was able to identify that the subject building was indeed modern and submitted a de-listing application to Historic England to remove the building from the national list.
This was successfully accepted, and the building was removed from the list, thus eliminating the requirement for the client to request listed building consent for works to the building.
