Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Act 2013 and listed buildings
From 6 April 2014, the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Act (ERR) 2013 introduced changes to the Planning (Listed Building and Conservation Areas) Act 1990.
Culture Minister Ed Vaizey said, ‘Listed buildings are a rich part of this country’s heritage and it is only right that we try to help those in charge of looking after them. These new measures will uphold levels of existing heritage protection, whilst also simplifying the process so that those within the heritage sector and owners are not bogged down in bureaucracy.’
The changes introduced are set out below.
Listed Building Heritage Partnership Agreements have been introduced to allow listed building consent for specified works (other than demolition), to listed buildings covered by the Agreement, which would otherwise require several consents.
 Local Listed Building Consent Orders (LLBCO)
Local Listed Building Consent Orders have been introduced to allow local planning authorities to grant permission for works (other than demolition) to listed buildings in their area, which would otherwise require several consents.
 Listed Building Consent Orders (LBCO)
