There is no statutory time limit on the duration of an LLBCO, although English Heritage advises that it is good practice for LPAs to set a time limit to ensure that the LLBCO continues to meet appropriate standards and principles for conservation and has regard to the special interest of the building. It recommends that a period of up to 25 years would be a sufficiently long term to justify the input of resource needed to set up the LLBCO, and represents the maximum span within which it might be considered not to be likely to fall out of step with changing conservation requirements.

Procedure for making an LLBCO
