Culture minister Jeremy Hunt has granted buildings Three, Four and Six on the Broadgate estate a certificate of immunity from listing for five years
In June English Heritage failed in a bid to have the buildings listed at Grade II*. The heritage organisation described the buildings as a: ‘triumph of urbanism’ that provides a point architectural and historic interest in the capital.
The Certificate of Immunity for Broadgate
‘Under section 6(2) of the 1990 Act, the effect of this certificate is to preclude the Secretary of State from listing nos 3, 4 and 6 Broadgate for a period of five years from the date of issue (being the date of this letter), and to preclude the local planning authority from serving a Building Preservation Notice (BPN) on the buildings during that period’.
