With specialist training, expert knowledge and a wide range of experience dealing with listed buildings we can help you complete the work sensitively, respectfully and progressively.
Buildings are listed because they have been identified as having special architectural or historic interest and may be important due to their age or condition. There are three grades of listing, Grade I, Grade II* or Grade II. Grade I is the highest listing and is usually reserved for the most important buildings, such as Westminster Abbey, with Grade II being the most popular listing.
Listing a building means that any changes are controlled by the local Planning Authority, meaning a reasonable approach is taken to protect it for future generations. Listed Building Consent is required for any alteration or extension work that may affect the character of a Listed Building. This can also include work done internally if it substantially changes the interior. Depending upon project specifics additional Planning Permission may also be required.
