Works Affecting Protected Structures

Works Affecting Protected Structures

Considerations for working with protected buildings and structures

Owners or occupiers of protected structures have a duty of care to prevent their building being harmed through damage or neglect. 

Planning permission is required for all works that affect the character of a protected structure. This means that permission is needed for a wider range of works than would normally apply.  

You can obtain a 'Section 57 Declaration' which will provide you with a list of works that do and do not require planning permission on your property by completing and returning the form below.
