Listed Buildings

Owning a Listed Building comes with special responsibilities to care for and preserve its special interest and significance, however this does not necessarily mean change is not possible.

Listed Building Consent will be required for any work which might affect the historic or architectural interest of your building. Further information can be found through the following links below.

Under Section 9 of the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 it is a criminal offence to demolish a listed building, or to alter or extend it in any way which would affect its character, unless you have first received Listed Building Consent. Penalties for carrying out alterations illegally can be severe.
