Development Control Casebook: Listed Buildings - School fence escapes need for consent

An inspector has decided that there is no need for him to determine an appeal for works at a school in south-west London after ruling that listed building consent is not required.

The school occupied a grade II listed building and a timber fence stretched either side of an entrance protected by gates. The fence was not physically attached to the school and was unlikely to have been in place in 1948, the inspector reasoned. Consequently, it did not form a curtilage structure to the listed building and its demolition did not require permission. Proposed replacement railings did not require consent either as they were not attached to the school building, he opined.
