Listed Building Consents: A Review of Data

Front cover for Listed building consents: a review of data

By R Bate, Green Balance and H Homard

A review of data on listed building consents was commissioned to give a statistically robust insight on trends in listed building consents over a three year period, March 2011 - March 2014.

The research analyses a sample of 936 applications for listed building consent. The cases are evenly distributed so far as practicable between regions, between urban and rural areas, between authorities which do and do not charge for pre-application discussions, and between periods before and after legislation came into effect to reintroduce V.A.T. at 20% on approved works to listed buildings.

Alongside headline figures such as type of applicant, works and whether or not an agent was used for example, variables were tested against each other and preliminary findings explained in more detail with respect to the wider socio-economic climate.
