Listed buildings

Is your building listed?

Having listed buildings helps us acknowledge and understand our shared history.  It marks and celebrates a building's special architectural and historic interest, and also brings it under the consideration of the planning system so that some thought will be taken about its future.  

Find out more on Historic England's website.

Is your building listed?

There are a number of ways to establish whether you live in a listed building or building of local merit:

When the building changes ownership, the fact that it is listed will be revealed when a Land Charge Search is made.

When a building is first listed, the owner and occupier are notified informally by Historic England.  Subsequently, Waverley will also notify the owner/occupier.

Listed building consent  

An owner or his agents may not demolish any part of a listed building, nor extend it, or carry out any interior or exterior alterations affecting its character without obtaining Listed Building Consent from the Council.

How to apply

Applications for listed building consent (or a joint application to also obtain planning permission) can be made online.  Further information can be found on the submit a planning application webpage which includes details of the validation requirements, how to pay (where necessary) and a a link to the Planning Portal to apply online.
