I never thought it would happen, but Erno Goldfinger's Alexander Fleming House has become a listing building.
I thought it was a joke and the 'listing' was caused by subsidence.
How will listing affect residents?
Listing is a tool to identify those buildings that should be celebrated as having architectural and historic interest, and where changes should be carefully considered. Listed buildings can be altered, extended and sometimes even demolished within government planning guidance
. The local authority uses this consent process to make decisions that balance the site's historic significance against other issues such as function, condition or viability.
You will need to apply for Listed Building Consent in order to make changes that will affect the special interest of your listed building. Planning information on making changes to listed buildings and links to grant information is available from the planning pages of our website.
