This Guidance Note concerns what is and is not included in a listing, i.e. the principal building and potentially fixtures, attached structures, and curtilage structures.  It explores the mythology which has grown up on this subject.  It also covers the implications of inclusion, and what members can do to persuade local authorities or others that something is, or is not, included in the listing of a listed building.  It is designed to be read alongside the CLA Guidance Note Getting heritage and other consents.

The law requires listed building consent (LBC) for any work to a listed building which affects its 'special interest'.  Work which does not affect special interest - much (perhaps most) work to  listed buildings- therefore does not need consent.  In practice, however, there is almost no substantive 'official' guidance, it can seem very unclear whether LBC is needed or not, and penalties for carrying out work which needed consent without consent can be significant.  This Guidance Note is designed to help members who are in doubt.

Local authorities can create 'local heritage lists' of heritage assets which are not significant enough to qualify for national listing/scheduling etc but are felt to be of sufficient local significance to be taken into account in planning decisions.  Less than half have local heritage lists, though more may do so in future.  Local heritage listing gives this heritage a significant degree of protection, and may affect (positively or negatively) owners and neighbouring owners.  This Guidance Note explains how it is carried out, what it means, and now members can be involved in, or influence, the process.
