Listed building control is a type of planning control, which protects buildings of special architectural or historical interest. These controls are in addition to any planning regulations which would normally apply. Listed building status can also result in the requirement for planning permission where it wouldn't ordinarily be required - for example, the erection of means of enclosure.
It is a criminal offence to carry out work which needs listed building consent without obtaining it beforehand. There are no planning fees for these applications.
