This popular workshop will provide a valuable introduction or essential CPD for enforcement officers who investigate and deal with breaches of Listed Building Control and complements our other workshops on planning enforcement. It is also suitable for planning and conservation officers who may get drawn into dealing with breaches of listed building control, managers who may have to authorise taking enforcement action or lawyers who have to draft notices or consider prosecutions. The workshop will look at the legislative framework, the pros and cons of using particular procedures and current best practice. Topics covered during the day will include: what is listed, defining the curtilage, what constitutes a breach of listed building control, investigations and use of statutory notices to obtain information, when to caution, using enforcement tools, appeals, whether to prosecute (s9 and s43), what has to be proven/statutory defences and the use being made of POCA. Reference will be made throughout to relevant case law.

Extremely informative and the workshop was informal so I felt we could all express ourselves, or give examples from our own authority. Loads of information and lots of very relevant examples.

It was informative and covered everything. It made me feel more confident in taking things to formal action and knowing the correct procedure when doing so.

A very full programme mixing both examples and procedure with the statutory requirements – excellent and very enjoyable.

Reminded me of tools that can be used and tools that we don’t use.
