Hello All, has anyone had experience of obtaining authorization to historic building alterations from the Miranda do Corvo Camara? Very grateful for any advice... Liza

you should schedule a meeting with one of the council planners/architects to discuss the project.

Take all of the paperwork you have if you own the building, if not get as much as possible from the seller /agent. Then talk nicely, cause you will need the council on side throughout the process.

Many thanks for your quick reply. Will I also need to get architectural plans of the changes drafted, or no?

Hello,

i´m in Cascais historical center but usually my contrator handles every authorization. Here, if you are not changing the facade, you just need a prior notice to the Càmara so they know you are working in the inside.
I trust my contractor for that. If there is an inspection, he is responsible for it.
If you need to do it by yourself, take your time to ask for a meeting at the Câmara and bring any papers you have.  

Good luck!
