What is known as a Part 31 prior approval for demolition application was submitted to LBH to determine, because, although planning permission isn't required to demolish an unlisted building outside a Conservation Area, it is necessary for the Council to be formally notified as to the demolition method/process intended to be followed.

Such an application can only have regard to the demolition method/process, i.e. not having regard to any 'merits' issues, hence why the public aren't consulted directly by the Council (because most of Joe Public aren't experts on demolition processes), but the applicant is required to display a site notice when submitting the application (which was done).

Such an application also has to be determined within 28 days of submission, as otherwise after 28 days the building can be demolished as long as it is done in accordance with the demolition method/process submitted to the Council.

In this case, the prior approval application was submitted, some local residents went bananas, and as there was not a cat in hells chance of the building being listed the only option open to LBH was to designate a conservation area, as that removes the right to demolish.

Which would all be fine (if it was done as part of a carefully considered long-term review), but there's numerous cases, including the one I cited, where Councils have done exactly what LBH has done and ended up in court. 

To be blunt as others have said this is really a case of pandering to some residents, and if it all goes pear shaped in the High Court then LBH can say "oh well, we did our best for you, don't blame us, blame that nasty judge" - because in many ways that is how local government works these days.
