The Historic Buildings and Conservation Committee (HBCC) reviews applications for listed building consent and seeks to ensure a sustainable future for vital aspects of London’s built heritage.

The HBCC only has an active membership of 12 and, therefore, finds it difficult to cover all 32 London Boroughs. 

If you have the odd hour to spare and are interested in the heritage of your local area, the HBCC would be happy to guide you through your borough's planning website and help you with notes on how to assess the planning proposals.

If you are interested in getting involved, please contact Vicki Fox, the HBCC Secretary, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
