The site should be edged clearly in red and a blue line should be drawn around other land owned by an applicant adjoining or near the application site.
     
  • Site (Block) Plan At an identified metric scale showing north, the work in relation to site boundaries and existing buildings.
     
  • Elevations Existing and proposed (scaled) clearly showing the proposed works in relation to what is presently there for any elevations being altered. (Photographs of the areas affected by the applications are helpful to assist with the application).
     
  • Floor plans Existing and proposed (scaled) clearly showing the proposed works in relation to what is presently there (detailing all opening doors and windows), these can be combined if changes can clearly be shown.
     
  • Sections Existing and proposed (scaled) clearly showing the proposed works in relation to what is presently there for any areas of the building being altered. (Photographs of the areas affected by the applications are helpful to assist with the application).

    Documents
    • A statement to include a description of the part or parts of the listed building or buildings that are likely to be affected, and an explanation explaining why the applicant believes the proposed works would not affect the character of the listed building as a building or buildings of special architectural or historic interest.
       
    • Any evidence to verify the information included in the application.

Please note it is up to the person applying for a Certificate of Lawfulness of Proposed Works to provide the proper evidence to show that the proposed works do not require listed building consent.

General Information

Two copies of plans, forms, certificates and supporting statements are required to support any paper based submission to be numbered so they can be referred to on the decision notice.

All Plans must be to an identified metric scale (normally 1:50 or 1:100) must state the original paper size, show a north point and/or identify which direction elevations face and be named in a logical manner. When proposing new development they must include a scale bar and key dimensions.

Prior to submitting an application you are strongly advised to make use of the informal advice service we offer.

As part of our registration process both our Administrative Team and our Conservation Team inspect all Certificate of Lawfulness for Proposed Works to a listed building applications received in detail. Requests for plans and supporting information  will be proportionate to the nature and scale of the proposal and information will only be required that adds to an understanding of the proposal. This being the case it would assist if an applicant/agent advises as to why they feel their submission is adequate and reflects the matter to hand.

Further guidance on 1APP is available on the National Planning Portal'
