Shutters & Listed building consent

Posted on March 3rd, 2015 | 0 Comments

We’ve come across many Shutter clients who live in listed buildings and they  will often ask if there are implications to installing our shutters.

The answer is a resounding no… installing shutters have no greater implication than hanging a picture on a wall or putting up a curtain pole. Yes, there are fixings that we need to establish, but this is always done ‘invisibly’ (so that screw holes cant be seen) and always with a sympathetic approach to the setting and with no compromise to any window frames, stonework or fittings within the property

We recently had the experience of dealing with a listed building officer within our Somerset area, who was nervous about granting permission to our client, the owner of a converted 14th Century Mill and adjoining cottage  . Following a site meeting, to explain our approach, to show the frame sections we use and how the panels work …full approval was granted with no reservation and we went on to complete another stunning installation

Their approach from the outset was in marked contrast. We were immediately taken by Duncan & Gules on a personal level and their design expertise, quality of their shutters and passion for their product marked them out from the outset. David & Sarah Murnaghan. Bristol
