The appeal fails and the listed building enforcement notice is upheld subject to amendment.

This planning appeal against the listed building enforcement notice issued by Monmouthshire County Council was subject to written representations. The appeal covered:

  • Without listed building consent – unauthorised removal of a gatepier and stone pineapple finial on the south (side) elevation closest to the subject building.

The Inspector appointed prepared a report for the Minister for Environment and Sustainable Development and the decision was made by an official acting for the Minister for Environment and Sustainable Development.

The Inspector's recommendations that the:

  • listed building consent ought to be granted for the works be dismissed was accepted;
  • requirements of the notice exceed what is necessary for restoring the building to its condition before the works were carried out and the listed building enforcement notice be amended was accepted; and
  • period specified in the notice as the period within which any step required by the notice is to be taken falls short of what should reasonably be allowed be dismissed was accepted.

The Decision Letter contains the reasoning behind the decision to refuse the appeal, subject to the amendment of the listed building enforcement notice.
