    GRADE II LISTED BUILDING

    A building is listed when it is of special architectural or historic interest considered to be of national importance and therefore worth protecting. Listed buildings come in three categories of 'significance' - Grade I for buildings of the highest significance, Grade II*, and Grade II. Most listed building owners are likely to live in a Grade II building as these make up 92% of all listed buildings.

    Listing means there will be extra control over what changes can be made to a building's interior and exterior. Because all listed buildings are different and unique, what is actually covered by a listing can vary quite widely, but listing covers the whole property internally and externally. Owners will need to apply for Listed Building Consent for most types of work. The planning department of your local authority decides whether to grant planning permission or listed building consent for proposed work. They can provide advice before and during the application process. They should be your first port of call if you wish to go ahead with making changes to your home. You should check first with your local authority Conservation Officer whether or not consent will be needed for what you plan to do. You should also get an outline of what might be acceptable and find out whether ideas need to be adapted to make them more likely to succeed. This simple step could save a lot of time and money.

    PLEASE NOTE: unauthorised work to a listed building is a criminal offence. Furthermore, an owner will have trouble selling a property which has not been granted Listed Building Consent for work carried out.

    CONSERVATION AREA

    We believe the property to be situated within a conservation area. A conservation area aims to preserve and protect the character of an area; this can be made up of buildings, open spaces, views, trees, and other features. The objective of defining a conservation area is to provide for the preservation and enhancement of the special interest of the place. The intention is not to stifle change, but to monitor and provide positive management of these unique areas. Most properties within a conservation area have similar planning requirements to properties outside a conservation area, but there are a number of differences, depending on issues like the amount of a property to be demolished, the age of agricultural buildings, and the ways in which it is intended to extend or alter a building/structure within a conservation area, including boundary treatments such as fences or walls. All trees are protected and you may need to give notice to the Local Authority before carrying out work on them. In rare cases, some permitted development rights may not apply. It is always prudent to check with the Local Authority planning department prior to commencement of any works to any part of the property. When considering works within a conservation area, the Local Authority has a duty to consult one of the conservation officers to ensure the proposed works do not detract from the character and appearance of the conservation area.
