Listed Building Owner Info Request

Islington Council has to give consent for Alterations, Extension or Demolition of a Listed  Building  under  the Planning Act 1990 .
You may need evidence of these consents  from the council if you ever sell your property, and of course it is a criminal offence to carry out works to a listed building without prior Listed Building Consent – even if you did not know that the building was listed.

Has any Islington Leaseholder with a listed building received copies of a Listed Building consent certificate from Islington Planning department via HFI or Partners or any of their sub-contractors for any work they have carried out?

Has any Islington Leaseholder with a property in a Conservation Area been consulted in advance or received a letter from Islington Planning department via HFI or Partners or any of their sub-contractors approving any major works they have had done by HFI or Partners?

Please let us know.

2010 Public Inspection of Accounts – 28 (Monday) June to 26 July (Monday)

All our members who’ve received their final Major Works or other  bills might wish to ask to see a copy of the contract (with any variations) plus a copy of the final bill(s) relating to their contract.

We’d remind members that the question is of ‘how much’, not ‘why’ (why is a question is for Councillors/Officers).  Also, that they can inspect and make copies of the accounts and all books, deeds, contracts, bills, vouchers and receipts relating to them. (A charge may be made for excessive copies.)  There may well be members who might find it of great use to examine deeds as they often contain covenants and other useful detail.

This Information is available from LBI.
Please email: ‘mohammed.sajid@islington.gov.uk’  or phone him on the Islington council phone number Tel: 020 7527 2000 for an appointment and the required documents for inspection nearer the time.
