Overview

The objective of this commissioned report is to advise the potential purchaser of a grade listed building with an assessment of the impact that planning regulations are likely to have on its future redevelopment and/or conversion.

The UK planning laws and regulations are quite rigid, particularly in relation to the redevelopment or conversion of properties that have been listed for preservation due to its historical interest (Cullingworth and Nadin 2002). Therefore, it is important that the purchaser and their construction team are aware of the impact of these grades prior to purchase and, equally important, ensure that the redevelopment of the property fully complies with the local planning and listing requirements (Ross 1996).
