Applications to determine whether listed building consent required

(2) The provisions of paragraphs 1(1), 7 and 8 of Schedule 1A shall, subject to any necessary modifications, apply in relation to any application under this Article, and to the determination thereof, as they apply in relation to applications for listed building consent and to the determination of such applications.
