The document also sets out the circumstances under which the Secretary of State will consider granting a request for a certificate of immunity (CoI) from listing in respect of a building under the terms of the 1990 Act. It states that upon application the Secretary of State may choose to issue a COI from listing under the terms of section 6 of the 1990 Act. A COI precludes the Secretary of State from listing a building, and a local planning authority from serving a building preservation notice in relation to it, for a period of five years from the date of issue. COIs provide the owners / developers of a building with certainty over its possible listing. Upon application for a COI, the building is considered for listing: this may result in the Secretary of State choosing to list the building, to issue the COI, or – in exceptional circumstances – to do neither.
