Barbican Estate listed building management guidelines

The Barbican Estate is a mixed use development constructed between 1963 and 1982 by the City of London Corporation, designed by architects Chamberlin, Powell and Bon. It includes two schools, a theatre and more than 2,000 flats.

In 2001 the whole estate was listed at Grade II. The Listed Building Management Guidelines (LBMG) were approved as a Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG) in 2005 and updated in 2012. The guidelines help residents, those managing the estate and planning officers to assess what kind of work will need listed building consent.

Volume IV cover the Landscape elements of the Barbican Estate and provides advice on managing change across the open spaces of the estate. In addition, Part 2 identifies Good Practice, and Part 3 discusses the Soft Landscape and green infrastructure. Part 2 and 3 have not been adopted as SPDs. Below are the documents, appendices and supporting documentation.
