The very best examples of buildings of architectural, cultural or historic interest are listed. Buildings that are listed come in all manner of shapes and sizes and do not have to be old to be on the statutory protection list. 

Developments affecting listed buildings must be treated sensitively and in addition to requiring planning permission, listed building consent will usually be required before even the smallest of alterations can be made.  Understanding when listed building consent is required (and when it is not) requires specialist knowledge and understanding of the planning system which governs such development and therefore drawing on the right experience at the right time will be essential if you are to achieve your development needs.
