A complete guide to this highly complex area of law, this book explains how buildings are listed and included in conservation areas, how planning controls apply to historic buildings and areas, what powers there are to bring about repairs, and what happens if works are carried out without consent.

All relevant legislation and case law is considered in detail, including the recent changes brought in by the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 and associated regulations and policy documents, along with over 100 new judicial decisions. In this edition, the author has included new, in-depth treatment of:-

  • The extent of listing, including ""curtilage""
  • VAT on works to listed buildings
  • World heritage sites
  • Criminal prosecution for unauthorised works
The book includes procedural flowcharts, and valuable appendices containing precedents, sample conditions, sentencing levels and forthcoming changes to the law. There is also coverage of the new law on historic buildings in the Republic of Ireland.
