Local Authorities designate polling places by virtue of Section 18B of The Representation of the People Act 1983 and are reviewed every 5 years along with the Polling Districts.

Listed Buildings (inspire:LISTEDBUILDINGS)

Buildings are ‘listed’ by Historic Scotland for their special architectural or historic interest on behalf of the Scottish Government. The aim of listing such buildings is to protect or enhance their special character by affording them statutory protection. The principles for listing buildings are fairly complex and there is no right of appeal against the Scottish Governments’ decision to list a property. Listed buildings are listed in 3 categories - A, B and C. Category A listed buildings are of national or international importance. Category B listed buildings are of regional importance. Category C buildings are of local importance. A building’s listing covers its interior, exterior and “any object or structure fixed to a building” or which falls within the curtilage of such a building, forming part of the land since before 1 July 1948.

Smoke Control Areas (inspire:SMOKE_CONTROL_AREAS)

It is also an offence to burn solid fuel in a home or other premises unless the fuel is: * an 'authorised smokeless fuel' (standard house coal and wood are not authorised fuels); or * burnt in an 'exempt appliance'.

Conservation Areas (inspire:CONSERVATIONAREAS)

Dundee City Council decides which parts of the City are worthy of protection for their special character as Conservation Areas, to designate such areas and ensure their future management. Conservation Areas are areas of special architectural and/or historic interest, the character or appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance. Within conservation areas all development proposals will be expected to preserve or enhance the character of the surrounding area. This will require the retention of all features that contribute to the character and appearance of the conservation area.

They are an effective means of protecting individual trees, groups of trees or woodlands whose removal would have significant impact on the public amenity of an area. Where protection is given by a TPO, prior consent in writing is required from the Council to carry out any work on the trees. It is an offence to cut down, lop, top, uproot or wilfully damage or destroy a protected tree without the Council’s permission. An owner wishing to carry out work on a tree must apply online at the Scottish Government’s e-planning system at https://eplanning.scotland.gov.uk/WAM/.
