Fast-Track Listing

Our Fast-Track Listing service provides clarity sooner over whether a building meets the criteria for listing or not.

What Fast-Track Listing offers you

If you are unsure if a building is eligible for listing it can cause delays to any planning applications you make or any changes being made to your property.

We offer a guaranteed timeframe, usually within 12 weeks, in which we will make our recommendation to the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) on whether or not a building or site should be listed. Providing clarity sooner and reducing possible delays in the planning process.

We have advised a number of clients through the EAS process and have received timely, well informed advice that has provided real value

Recent changes to the law make it possible to exclude parts of a site from the listing. This gives you more clarity on what changes are possible to your historic place while preserving what is most important.

You can also ask us to consider a Certificate of Immunity from listing which, if granted, guarantees that a building won’t be listed for five years.

A full description of our Fast-Track Listing service can be seen in the EAS Service Descriptions.

How to apply

Fast-Track Listing is available by completing our online application form.

Please be aware that if you are applying under this service it doesn’t guarantee that we will take forward your application, but we will be in touch to discuss.

Full details are available on our How to Apply for Listing page.

How you will be invoiced

Following an application for our paid-for service, we will carry out an initial assessment and be in touch to provide a copy of our full terms and conditions. This will include a price estimate for your case. For further details see our ‘Prices for the Enhanced Advisory Services’ page.

Before we will begin work on your case we will raise an initial invoice of £450 excluding VAT. This will form part of the cost estimate provided to you and will be deducted from the final bill. The £450 is a fixed fee to recover the cost of delivering these services. Please note all of our price estimates are provided exclusive of VAT. The amount will be £540 inclusive of VAT.

Once we have completed your case and sent our advice and recommendation over to the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, we will then raise the final invoice to recover the final amount.
