Listed buildings and Conservation Areas contribute to the rich built heritage of Stirling and Stirlingshire. Special protections help to ensure these buildings and areas are conserved for future generations to enjoy.
Listed building are legally protected and consent is required for changes to a listed building that the local Planning Authority deems will affect its character. More information on listed buildings can be found on the Historic Environment Scotland website.
For buildings located within a Conservation Area, any changes which may affect the building’s appearance (including repairs that involve replacement materials or elements) may require Planning Consent. Demolition of a building, part of a building or other structure in a Conservation Area will require Conservation Area Consent.
Buildings of special architectural or historic interest are put into one of three listing categories according to their relative importance. In Scotland the listed building categories are:
Buildings of special architectural or historical interest which are outstanding examples of a particular period, style or building type.
Buildings of special architectural or historic interest which are major examples of a particular period, style or building type.
Buildings of special architectural or historic interest which are representative examples of a period, style or building type.
Category A listed Darrow's Lodging
Category B Listed Central Library
Category C Listed 53-71 Barton Street
Conservation Areas are areas of architectural or historic interest designated by the local authority in which additional planning restrictions apply. There are eleven Conservation Areas in Stirling and further information is available on the Stirling Council website.
Maintenance and repair which is on a ‘like for like’ basis and which does not alter the materials or appearance of a building does not normally require consents. However, prior to starting work it is always advisable to contact the Stirling Council Planning Department for further information.
