Specialist heritage advice

We offer a specialist heritage advice pre-application service for proposals which would not involve planning permission, but may lead to the submission of a standalone listed building consent application or a standalone ‘Relevant Demolition in a Conservation Area’ application. This service carries a fee of £50, and the advice you receive will be via correspondence and is likely to include a site visit.

Some advice regarding heritage assets will remain free of charge, such as heritage advice for properties within the defined Morecambe Area Action Plan (MAAP) boundary, general queries regarding the process of submitting a listed building consent application and advice to third parties regarding imminent or ongoing development proposals, for example.

Due to the high volume of queries which are being received, we have to ensure that our service is sustainable in the future by introducing a charge.
