Listed buildings

About listed buildings

A listed building has been formally declared to be of special architectural or historic interest by being placed on statutory lists under the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990.

Listing ensures that the architectural and historic interest of the building is carefully considered before any alterations, either outside or inside, are agreed.
