Caring for Your House

Front Door

All windows in Port Sunlight’s listed homes are protected features. This includes windows at the front, sides and rear of the property and roof lights. Windows contribute to the heritage value of the listed homes and the character of the conservation area.

If properly maintained, hard wood windows can last for 100 years or longer. On-going maintenance and minor repairs are far more economical than like-for-like replacement of a timber window. PSVT would always recommend maintenance and repair over replacement of an original or appropriate window. Replacement requires Listed Building Consent from Wirral Council and permission from PSVT.

PSVT and Wirral Council adopted the Port Sunlight Local Listed Building Consent Order (LLBCO) to clarify and streamline the Listed Building Consent process to replace severely deteriorated or inappropriate rear windows. Only timber windows without leaded lights are currently covered by the LLBCO and not all terraces are included in the LLBCO.

For full details about the LLBCO notice process, to determine if your windows are included in the LLBCO and to better understand the documentation requirements, please visit.
