Listed Buildings

In the United Kingdom, the term listed building refers to a building or other structure officially designated as being of special architectural, historical or cultural significance.

  • Grade I buildings are of exceptional interest, sometimes considered to be internationally important; only 2.5% of UK listed buildings    are Grade I
  • Grade II* buildings are particularly important buildings of more than special interest; 5.5% of UK listed buildings are Grade II*
  • Grade II buildings are nationally important and of special interest; 92% of all UK listed buildings are in this class and it is the most likely grade of listing for a home owner.

Listing was begun by a provision in the Town and Country Planning Act 1947. Listing a building imposes severe restrictions on what the owner might wish to change or modify in the structure or its fittings. In England, the authority for listing under the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990[2] rests with English Heritage, a non-departmental public body sponsored by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, while local authorities have a responsibility to regulate and enforce the planning regulations.
