The Terms of a Heritage Consent

It is very important to understand precisely what a consent or permission for development or works actually gives permission for.  

A consent or permission only allows what is expressly set out in the relevant documents; any conditions attached to the consent or permission and any legal agreements must be followed precisely. Anything outside of that may need a separate consent or permission and, without such consent, may amount to a criminal offence in some circumstances.

This section provides guidance on interpreting permissions and consents, such as planning permission and listed building consent, as well as understanding the conditions imposed.
