Part 4: Additional Planning Control.

Section 83: Lapse of building preservation notices

This section applies where a building preservation notice ceases to be in force after the 6 month expiry period has lapsed or by departmental notification.  A person who commits an offence under section 85 or section 147 while the building preservation notice is current can still be prosecuted and punished even after the notice has ceased to be in force under section 83.  However, any applications for listed building consent – or any consent granted - while the notice was in force shall lapse.  Likewise, any listed building enforcement notice served while the notice was in force shall cease to have effect.
