What Fast-track listing offers you
If you are unsure if a building is eligible for listing it can cause delays to any planning applications you make or any changes being made to your property.
We offer a guaranteed timeframe, usually within 12 weeks, in which we will make our recommendation to the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) on whether or not a building or site should be listed. Providing clarity sooner and reducing possible delays in the planning process.
Recent changes to the law make it possible to exclude parts of a site from the listing. This gives you more clarity on what changes are possible to your historic place while preserving what is most important.
You can also ask us to consider a Certificate of Immunity from listing which, if granted, guarantees that a building won’t be listed for five years.
