In the United Kingdom, a Listed Building, is one that has been placed on the Statutory List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest.
Listed Buildings are graded (Grade I*, Grade I, Grade II etc.), depending upon their importance and historical value. A star on the grading generally indicates specific features of interest or importance.
Special planning legislation and guidance applies to Listed Buildings, intended to protect them. A Listed Building may not be demolished, extended, or altered without special permission from the local planning authority. Local planning authorities typically consult the relevant central government agency, particularly for significant alterations to the more notable Listed Buildings.
Development of Listed Buildings will require planning consent and Listed Building Consent.Got a project you would like to discuss with us?
