What is Listed Building Consent? There are a few government bodies that aim to save, protect and champion buildings, parks and monuments considered to have heritage value and merit being ‘listed’. These include Historic England (formerly English Heritage), Historic Wales, Historic Scotland and the Built Heritage Directorate of the Northern Ireland Environment Agency. “All listed buildings can be found online, and the listing describes the aspects of the building that have been documented as a heritage asset,” Kevin Clarke says. “This often includes the surrounding grounds of the building, including perimeter walls and fences.“To make changes to any building on the list, you need to apply to the relative governing body for Listed Building Consent prior to any work being carried out,” he says, and explains that this refers to both internal and external changes.

A thatched cottage almost ‘untouched’ by a futuristic additionThe ‘glass box’ extension on this Grade II listed thatched cottage in Cheshire takes the idea of respecting the original building to a new level. While an ultra-contemporary glazed, angular add-on to such an old, rustic building may not be to everyone’s taste, what’s lovely about this design is the way the original house keeps its integrity. The emphasis on glass and lack of unnecessary bulky framing in the design of the extension means the original front of the house is still very much visible.“It doesn’t interfere with the original property too much,” says Alex Saint of bulthaup by Kitchen Architecture, who designed the extension, “and we didn’t have to alter the cottage a great deal to install it.” Structurally, all that needed to be changed was the opening up of the outside wall that leads into the new extension.

Consider going for a contrastTo create the open, light-filled, spacious kitchen/dining space that you dream of, simply extending in a matching style to your existing house might not lend itself to your vision. Although by no means to everyone’s taste, one option you might consider is a contrasting architectural style, such as here, where a traditional thatched cottage has a contemporary glass-box extension. There’s certainly no mistaking what is original from what is extension in this project.What you need to know about planning permission

Is this the front garden?? I absolutely love the look of this. Perfect blend of cute cottage and cool contemporary glass and steel extension. Points: - Thatched Cottage - The glass extensions and contemporary kitchen - The kitchen is in the front garden? - you can greet guests as they approach the front door? Cons: - Thatched Cottage - It looks like a glass box, will it trap heat? - Sun trap? What if you don't want the sun above you all the time?
