Suitability for use in Listed Buildings

We have the expertise to create sustainable wood flooring that will be accepted by local authority planning departments, English Heritage and the local Conservation Officer.

Our E109 unfinished oak flooring for example has been approved as a replacement on many occasions and our E308 lacquered oak flooring has been used in lots of projects when refurbishing listed buildings.

If you are an Architect or interior designer then we can help with the NBS specification and provide samples for approval by English heritage and the local authority; this should help make planning approval a smooth process. Listed buildings can often be very difficult to work with, we are here to help!

We have found the link below very helpful for our individual clients.

Applying for Building Consent

Listed Building Consent is administered by your local planning authority or Council.  Forms are available online or in hard copy if you visit your local office.  It usually takes between eight and 13 weeks for a decision to be made, depending on the size and complexity of the proposal.

When a Council considers whether to grant or to refuse an application it must take into account the desirability of preserving the building, its setting and those features which make it special.  Therefore you should consider those factors when planning your proposal for the changes to your property.

What should I do?

First, talk to your local conservation officer to check that you do need to make an application for Listed Building Consent. Then ask them to outline what might be acceptable and whether your ideas may need to be adapted to make them more likely to succeed.

If you have any questions regarding our wood floors and their suitability for your listed building, please call us on 01666 504015 or email
