Listed and Ecclesiastical Building Repairs

Regular maintenance helps keep listed and ecclesiastical buildings, such as old churches, in good condition. However, damage, weather effects, and deterioration over time can mean repairs are required to prolong and preserve the life of these culturally significant properties. At Validus Construction we can provide all sorts of listed and ecclesiastical building repairs.

More time, planning, and effort goes into repairing listed and ecclesiastical buildings compared to most other modern homes and properties. This is to ensure any work is carried out legally, sustainably, and without significantly affecting its character or appearance. Listed building consent from your local planning authority may be required.

We can advise on your planned repairs and whether you need consent for any type of listed or ecclesiastical building. Speak to one of our friendly and expert team to discuss your repairs or find out more on this page.

Listed building consent

The Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 regulates the condition of listed buildings across the UK. Any alterations or extensions to a listed building that may affect its character or appearance must have listed building consent from your local planning authority. This can include some listed building repairs.

Unauthorised work on a listed building is a criminal offence and individuals can be prosecuted. Any work carried out without listed building consent may be reversed, which incurs extra time and money. Building owners can also struggle to sell listed buildings where unauthorised changes have been made.

At Validus Construction we can advise on when listed building consent is required for any repairs. Enjoy peace of mind that all repairs to your listed and ecclesiastical buildings are made legally with all relevant paperwork as proof. This ensures you, the building and its heritage value are protected.
