This is a consultation on the draft secondary legislation that has been prepared to accompany the heritage elements of the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Act 2013. It has now closed.


Consultation description

The Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Act 2013 contains a number of provisions that directly affect the historic environment with the majority relating to listed buildings. Some of these require the preparation of secondary legislation before they are commenced on 06 April 2014. This is the formal consultation on the draft regulations.

By reducing the circumstances in which applications are needed the policy is intended to simplify the listed building consent system whilst allowing local planning authorities who administer these consents to deliver a more effective and efficient service.

The consultation document contains three draft regulations which relate to Listed Building Heritage Partnership Agreements, Local Listed Building Consent Orders and Certificates of Lawfulness of Proposed Works. It also considers the principles and approach in taking forward a programme of National Listed Building Consent Orders.

This consultation has been jointly prepared by the Department for Culture Media and Sport and the Department for Communities and Local Government. It will be open for a period of six weeks from 16 December 2013 until 28 January 2014.
