Prices for the Enhanced Advisory Services

For each service we will provide a cost estimate based on our initial assessment of your case.

Estimating the price

We charge full cost recovery for our Enhanced Advisory Services (EAS). This means that you will be invoiced for the costs attributable to your case, and no more.

We do not make a profit, but full cost recovery ensures that the provision of enhanced services is not cross-subsidised by taxpayer funding. Full cost recovery involves the cost of our staff time spent on your case (including travel and administration time), the addition of overheads, and any other direct non-staff costs incurred in the delivery of the service.

As at April 2021 we operate a standard hourly rate of £100 for all Enhanced Advisory Services (excluding VAT) which will be reviewed annually.

For Listing Enhancement and Fast-track Listing cases an additional fixed fee of £450 per case (excluding VAT) is added in order to recover the cost of the additional administration involved in these services.

The example price ranges below give you an impression of the sort of costs that might be involved for each of the services, but we would encourage you to contact us to find out the estimated price.

  • Fast-track Listing and Listing Enhancement cases are usually estimated between £2,000 and £6,000, depending on the complexity of the building or site. The average cost of a case is £3,000.
  • Extended Pre-Application Advice: entirely dependent on the length of our involvement with a case.
  • Screening for Potential Listing: the nature of this service means it is tailored to the area in question. Please contact us for a bespoke price estimate.

Prices depend on case complexity, and some cases may sit outside these example ranges. All price estimates are provided exclusive of VAT. 

All new and replacement Service Level Agreements (SLA’s) from April 2021 will be charged a standard hourly rate of £100 (excluding VAT) which will be reviewed annually. Existing SLAs entered into prior to this date may be based on different hourly rates and arrangements for hourly rate(s) increases, and these will be honoured for the life of these SLAs.

We may exempt some cases from charges where sites are included on a published Heritage at Risk Register (either Historic England or local authority registers) and, in our judgement, proposals address the conservation needs of the asset.
