No. Only the Secretary of State can list a building in England. This was still a gross breach of planning control, regardless of whether the building was listed or not; and the developers cannot be allowed benefit from that breach or it would make a mockery of the system. The idea that these people might be invited to remedy this by building something different on the site is ridiculous: they knocked it down so they could build something else. It would hardly be an effective remedy to give them everything they want.

The council had no objection to them building something else on the land, they simply didn't like design of the building that the developers wanted to put up and asked for the design to be ammended.

And quite possibly the developers and the planning authority might never have found a mutually agreeable design. In demolishing the pub without consent the developers were in breach of planning control and cannot be allowed to benefit from it. They are in a stronger bargaining position and in the meantime have the benefit of a cleared site. They must be made to remedy their breach.

I have always been most reluctant to give credence to planning decisions, but, having arrived inn St Malo yesterday, there is a building not far off medieval age, but with several bits repaired in concrete and other mismatches. I may well have been wrong. It is awful.

Thinking about it, the US demolished most of St Malo when securing entry in the war. I can imagine that large parts just needed rebuilding.
