Place Services – Living with Heritage Assets: How to understand and navigate the planning system

2 February - 09:30 - 12:30


This morning course is designed to provide an understanding of the planning system for those who own a listed building or live within a Conservation Area. It aims to demystify key planning terms and processes which are most commonly used, and provide guidance for those who live with heritage assets and would like to understand more about their buildings, areas and planning policy.

The course will provide delegates with an understanding of:

  • Listed Buildings, highlighting common maintenance issues and alterations, and how to approach these;
  • How and why Pre-Application Advice can support you;
  • When Listed Building Consent (LBC) or a Certificate of Lawfulness is required for works;
  • How to apply for LBC and a Certificate of Lawfulness, and what to expect throughout the process;
  • How living in a Conservation Area may affect development and alterations you are able to undertake; and
  • Key policy and guidance which relates to Conservation Areas, such as Article 4 Directions.

The course will be led by Tim Murphy Historic Environment Manager at Place Services. Tim (IHBC, MCIfA) has extensive experience working in both the private and public sector as a Heritage Consultant across the UK and Ireland. He is the Historic Environment Manager at Place Services, managing both historic building and archaeological development control support to several local planning authorities in the east and south east of England.

Tea and biscuits will be provided.
