Unlock The Potential Of Your Listed Building

A building is listed when it is noted as being of special architectural or historic interest and considered to be of national importance and worth protecting. You can discover whether a property is listed by looking at the Historic England Website. Or you can contact your local planning authority. Often there will be additional information detailing what is significant about your building.
There are three categories of ‘significance’:

  • Grade I for buildings of the highest significance
  • Grade II
  • Grade II
