What Listing Enhancement offers you
Unlike the old List Entries, which can be very brief, a new entry will give much more detail and set out clearly why a building has been listed and where its significance lies. Whilst in older List Entries the listing extends to the whole property, internally and externally, including extensions and other structures within the curtilage, Enhanced List Entries can detail what is excluded from the List Entry.
We offer a guaranteed timeframe, usually within 12 weeks, in which we will make our recommendation to the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS). This means any changes you plan on making to the property can be timetabled with more confidence.
You may be required to apply to your local authority for Listing Building Consent before any work can begin. The certainty and clarity an Enhanced List Entry provides can help you from the earliest of stages, informing decisions about what changes may be possible and giving local authorities the detail they need to make quicker decisions.
Under Listing enhancement you can ask us to consider re-grading, re-listing and de-listing.
