Section 87 — Certificate that Welsh Ministers do not intend to list building

306.Under section 87, the Welsh Ministers may, on the application of any person, issue a certificate stating that they do not intend to list a particular building. The effect is that for 5 years the Welsh Ministers may not list the building and the relevant planning authority may not list the building temporarily. Such an application equates to a person asking the Welsh Ministers to consider the building for listing and if the building is judged not to meet the listing criteria a certificate may be issued. This provides certainty for a person wishing to develop or undertake works to a building, or to develop the land on which it is situated, that the building will not be listed for the next 5 years.
