Changing the external colour of a listed building?

You don't need Listed Building Consent to change the external colour of a listed building or its windows and doors unless you would like to:

  • Change the finish type from lime wash to masonry paint
  • Paint a surface that has not been painted before
  • Change the colour of the building where it would affect the listed building's special interest or character

We ask that you submit the form below before you make any changes so we can confirm whether the proposed change to colour is acceptable.

This is only needed for listed buildings; you do not need to do this for a building in a conservation area.
