A Listed Building is a building, object or structure that has been judged to be of architectural or historic interest. Buildings are graded as Grade I - national importance, Grade II* - regional importance, or Grade II - locally important. The 'listing' of buildings is undertaken by the Government's Department of Culture, Media and Sport, following consultation with English Heritage.
Listed Building Consent is required to demolish a listed building or for any alteration or extension that would alter its character. Unauthorised works to a listed building is an offence. The Council is responsible for considering applications for Listed Building Consent.
