Listed Buildings Threatened by Applications to Demolish In 2010
(The Ancient Monuments Society is a mandatory consultee on applications to demolish listed buildings in whole or part in England and Wales.)
These statistics cover England and Wales but not Scotland or Northern Ireland.
The total number of listed buildings subject to applications to demolish was 50. The total number of listed buildings subject to applications to demolish in Wales was 5.
Each entry takes the following format:
i) Town / County as applicable.
ii) Name and address of building.
iii) The grade of listing is given: I, II* or II.
iv) The month in which the AMS was informed of the application.
v) The date of the building if known.
Then the code indicates:
C - Application submitted by Council
CC -Application submitted by County Council
F -Application wholly or partly prompted by fire damage.
R - Building threatened by a road scheme
Rp -Proposal for "replica" Facade after development.
Finally the result of the application, if yet determined, is given.
