A statutory listed building is a building thought to be of special architectural or historic interest. Those on the list are protected against any alterations which would affect their character.
In addition to the statutory listed buildings we have over 200 local-listed buildings of local historic or architectural interest, which have been acknowledged for their contribution to the local environment.

It is a criminal offence to make changes to a statutory listed building without consent. Any alteration except for normal maintenance, repair and decoration will require Listed Building Consent and possibly planning permission as well.
