listed walled garden and house

Postby margaret48 » Thu Mar 12, 2009 8:07 pm


I wondered if there is any building regulation that if a new build house is built on a piece of land outside our listed walled garden that it had to be a specific distance away from the listed wall.

The wall surrounds the property and is included with the house as a catagory B. I am in Scotland I don't know if the building regs are different in other parts of the country.

Any advice would be most welcome.

Listing generally applies to the whole of your property including the garden. You will have to talk to your local listed buildings officer to get a ruling on what you propose.

Regs in Scotland are different to England and wales I'm afraid so difficult to help you from darn sarf!

However, I'm guessing this new house has received planning permission and if it has there's a more than reasonable chance that its proximity to your listed wall was considered.

I reckon your best bet is to contact your local Planning people and have a chat.
