If your house is a listed building you will need to apply for Listed Building Consent as well as gaining standard Planning Permission
An application for listed building consent is necessary if you propose to alter, extend or demolish the whole or part of a listed building in a manner that would affect its character as a building of special architectural or historic interest.
This can include work to the interior as well as the exterior, work to objects or structures fixed to the building and work to detached objects or structures such as outbuildings, walls and gates within its boundary if they have formed part of the land prior to 1st July 1948. Some works, such as routine repair and maintenance, may not require consent.
It is a criminal offence to carry out works to listed buildings without consent.
The Local Plan for Slough contains a list of Listed Buildings in Slough in Appendix 5, although two more monuments were added to this list in 2010.
Applications for listed building consent can be completed online via the planning portal.
