Frequently Asked Questions
Before you contact us, please look at our Frequently Asked Questions to see if we can help you, or if we will need to refer you to another source of information.
You will be invoiced for your membership and can then pay via BACS or cheque; details of which will be found on the invoice.
Unfortunately not. We are a charitable organisation designed to help other charities, or not for profit groups, and as such do not have the capacity to support private owners.
If you are looking for practical advice about how to restore your property, you might like to consider SPAB (the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings). They run a range of practical courses and are experts in historic building maintenance techniques.
For any other queries, you could look at the Listed Property Owners Club which is designed to support owners of private listed buildings.
Another source of advice, depending on the nature of your enquiry, would be your local authority’s Conservation Officer. If your council still has an officer in post, you should be able to find their contact details on the council’s website.
No, but we work closely with heritage funders such as the Architectural Heritage Fund and we signpost our members to a wealth of organisations that do.
Information on listed building consent can be found on the Historic England website. Specific enquiries about applications to make alternations to a listed building need to be directed to the Planning Department / Conservation Officer at your local council.
If you send us an email with the geographical area you wish to work in, and details of the sort of tasks you are interested in doing, we will try and match you with one of our member organisations in your area.
We can also sometimes make use of volunteers at Heritage Network Trust; usually as photographers or case study gatherers.
