Compensation

- there are a variety of circumstances relating to a local authority's powers to control listed buildings which can lead to claims for compensation.
  1. Where an owner considers his interest in land has been adversley affected by a refusal, or a conditional grant, of listed building consent.
  2. Where a building preservation notice is served and then not confirmed by the Secretary of State.
  3. Where listed building consent is revoked or modified.
  4. Where a listed building is compulsorily purchased, the owner is entitled to compensation in the normal way. Where the planning authority are satisfied that the building has been deliberately neglected, they can make an application to the secretary of state for a "direction for minimum compensation". In such a direction, all development value is excluded.
