Recycling and rubbish collection days are changing for some households in Mendip and South Somerset. Read about the changes and how they may affect you.

Repairs to listed buildings

Sensitive repair work does not normally require listed building consent, but it is necessary to contact us before doing any work so that we can ensure the works qualify as ‘repair’.

Regular maintenance and minor ‘like-for-like’ repairs will not usually require listed building consent. This is as long as the repairs do not include removal of historic material or changes to its character. Many large-scale repairs, for example structural roof repairs, substantial re-pointing or external cleaning, require consent. Painting of exterior walls may also require consent if the walls were previously unpainted or if a significant colour change is planned that would affect the building’s character.

Before any works begin we may ask you to provide a method statement and specification of materials to be used. This is to make sure that works are carried out appropriately.
