What is Listed Building Consent (LBC)?

Listed Building Consent is a planning application process whereby the Historic Environment Division is required to be consulted on any alteration affecting the character of the structure of a listed building – either to the exterior, the interior or structures within its curtilage, including the fixing of advertisements or signs.

Listed building consent (items with the suffix /LBC) is a separate consent from planning permission (or a reference with the suffix /F) and is not a substitute for planning consent.
