Find out why the foam torching was done in the first place – if it was to fix slipping tiles then the battens could already be rotten.

listing building enforcement is unlikely to happen on a grade 2, it’s more about the external appearance and character, which foam torching will not effect. I have just re slated my grade 2 in the Peak District and removed the original lime torching and replaced it with a modern membrane – I didn’t ask for lites building consent and if the Peak Park ever complain, they can go and swivel.

If you are concerned about this you could always ring the local planning authority and ask them, but take any answer with a pinch of salt as they all seem to be idiots (the planners always seem bitter as they are usually failed, architects)
