Statutory Listed Buildings in Dudley

The Statutory List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest' is made up of buildings or structures which are considered to be of national importance because of their architectural or historic features. The statutory list is compiled by the Secretary of State hence they are referred to as 'Listed Buildings'. They are given special protection against inappropriate alteration or demolition.

There are around 300 statutorily listed buildings in the Borough of Dudley and the number increases yearly. Many of these buildings are a product of 18th and 19th century industrial growth, however there are earlier structures which show the development of building style over time.

The Council has also compiled a Local List of historic buildings in the Borough that do not meet the national criteria for inclusion on the statutory lists which are nevertheless worthy of protection and conservation in their own right.

Detailed records relating to listed buildings and other aspects of the historic environment can be found in the Dudley Historic Buildings Sites and Monuments' Record (HBSMR).

Works carried out to a Statutory listed building

Listed Building Consent is required from the local planning authority to alter or extend a listed building in a way that affects its character or appearance as a building of special architectural or historic interest.

This includes demolition and extending or altering any part of a listed building, inside, outside or within its boundary (curtilage) as well as the curtilage structures, which includes walls fences etc and parts of the building that are not visible from public spaces.

Any works undertaken to a building without listed building consent is considered to be a criminal offence. When considering applications for development to, or affecting the setting of, a listed building, the overriding consideration will be the effect on the significance of it as a designated heritage asset.

Please also note planning permission may also be required for the proposals. Early pre-application advice with the local planning authority is strongly advised for proposals that relate to a listed building.
