Further information

Where an application seeks listed building consent for structural alterations which would affect the significance of these heritage assets information that is proportionate to the significance of the asset and the potential impact upon that significance of the proposals should be provided.

For example, for a substantial demolition it is reasonable to expect the applicant to provide detailed information on the asset as a whole and a thorough explanation of the impact.

An application for a minor alteration to part of the asset is likely only to require detailed information on the affected part of the asset, along with a brief explanation of how the impacts relate to the significance of the asset as a whole.
