Listed building facing east



We have an attractive listed building facing east. It is semi detached and the end wall faces north. Is it possible to site a satelite dish at the back of the house (facing west
) to ensure that the facade in the front is unspoiled please? I believe that if we had a south facing wall then that would be acceptable but we don't, as this is situated on the other half of the semi.

We used to live in a Grade II listed barn. The previous owners who did the conversion did have a dish on the building they got served with an enforcement notice from the local authority and had to remove the dish altogether from the listed building.

When we moved in the dish was discretely fixed on a seperate garage block. We did have trouble as we moved because the enforcement notice was still active even though the dish had been moved.

I don't know whether these rules applied just here (Rochdale) or are national but I'd check with your local authority. Here you simply cannot place a satellite dish on a listed building.

When planning things like this it is worth remembering that the dish doesn't have to be sited on the house.

Perhaps there are other buildings? Some people use patio mounts at a low level out of the way.
