Commencement Orders bringing legislation that affects this Act into force:
(1)Where it appears to the planning authority—
(a)that any works have been, or are being, executed to a listed building in their district, and
(b)that the works are such as to involve a contravention of section 8(1) or (2),
they may, if they consider it expedient to do so having regard to the effect of the works on the character of the building as one of special architectural or historic interest, serve a notice under this section (in this Act referred to as a “listed building enforcement notice”).
(2)A listed building enforcement notice shall specify the alleged contravention and require such steps as may be specified in the notice to be taken—
(a)for restoring the building to its former state,
(b)if the authority consider that such restoration would not be reasonably practicable or would be undesirable, for executing such further works specified in the notice as they consider are required to alleviate in a manner acceptable to them the effect of the works which were carried out without listed building consent, or
(c)for bringing the building to the state it would have been in if the terms and conditions of any listed building consent for the works had been complied with.
(3)In considering whether such restoration is undesirable under subsection (2)(b), the authority shall have regard to the desirability of preserving—
(a)the character of the building, or
(b)its features of architectural or historical interest.
(4)Where such further works as are mentioned in subsection (2)(b) have been carried out on a building, listed building consent shall be deemed to have been granted in respect of the works carried out on that building.
(5)A listed building enforcement notice—
(a)shall specify the date upon which it is to take effect and, subject to section 35(3), shall take effect on that date, and
(b)shall specify the period (the “period for compliance”) within which any steps are required to be taken and may specify different periods for different steps,
and, where different periods apply to different steps, references in this Act to the period for compliance with a listed building enforcement notice, in relation to any step, are to the period within which the step is required to be taken.
(6)A copy of a listed building enforcement notice shall be served—
(a)on the owner, on the lessee and on the occupier of the building to which it relates, and
(b)on any other person having an interest in the building, being an interest which in the opinion of the authority is materially affected by the notice.
(7)The planning authority may—
(a)withdraw a listed building enforcement notice (without prejudice to their power to issue another), or
(b)waive or relax any requirement of such a notice and, in particular, extend the period specified in accordance with subsection (5),
and the powers conferred by this subsection may be exercised whether or not the notice has taken effect.
(8)The planning authority shall, immediately after exercising the powers conferred by subsection (7), give notice of the exercise to every person who has been served with a copy of the listed building enforcement notice or would, if the notice were reissued, be served with a copy of it.
(9)Every planning authority shall keep available for public inspection free of charge at reasonable hours and at a convenient place a list containing particulars of any building in their district in respect of which a listed building enforcement notice has been served.
