Listed Buildings SPD

Listed Buildings SPD - adopted July 2009 [PDF, 2MB]

This SPD was adopted by us to provide guidance to support previously adopted Development Plan Documents that have now been superseded by the South Cambridgeshire Local Plan 2018. This document is still a material consideration when making planning decisions, with the weight in decision making to be determined having regard to consistency with national planning guidance and the adopted South Cambridgeshire Local Plan 2018.

What are SPDs?

Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs) are intended to expand upon policy or provide further detail to policies in adopted Development Plan Documents (DPDs). When adopted, SPDs form part of the Local Development Framework but do not have development plan status and are not subject to independent examination.

What is the Listed Buildings SPD?

The Listed Buildings SPD expands on district-wide policies included in the Development Control Policies Development Plan Document (DPD) and policies in individual Area Action Plans (AAPs). These policies seek to ensure that Listed Building issues are adequately addressed throughout the development process. The Listed Buildings SPD also builds on the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 and Planning Policy Guidance 15: Planning and the Historic Environment.

The Listed Buildings SPD provides broad guidance on Listed Buildings regarding our policies, and therefore it covers general approaches, typical works and when Listed Building Consent is likely to be required.

Please note:Government legislation and policy may have been revised since the Listed Buildings SPD was adopted. References relating to permitted development or the need for planning permission should be clarified using the Government's Planning Portal or with the Planning Duty Officer.
