Listed buildings are buildings that have been placed on the Statutory List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest. This means that the property is legally protected and there are tight controls on what you can change on the outside and sometimes the inside as well (depending on what grade the building has been given).
There are around half-million listed buildings in the UK. It is an offence to carry out work which needs listed building consent, demolish, alter or extend a listed building without listed building consent.
There are three types of listed status for buildings:
- Grade I are buildings of an exceptional interest (historic or architectural)
- Grade II*are buildings of particularly importance of more than special interest
- Grade II are buildings that are of special interest, warranting every effort to preserve them.
