Listing helps us acknowledge and understand our shared history. It marks and celebrates a building’s special architectural and historic interest, and also brings it under the consideration of the planning system so that some thought will be taken about its future.
Owning any listed building is a great responsibility and taking on any such building project requires the highest standard of expertise to ensure the buildings are kept as close to their original state as possible, be it through the introduction of new design alterations or restoration.
We work closely with experts in planning and restoration ensuring every project meets the requirements out lined by English Heritage and Local district councils ensuring every application runs as smoothly as possible.
CATEGORIES OF LISTED BUILDINGS
Grade I buildings are of exceptional interest, sometimes considered to be internationally important; only 2.5% of listed buildings are Grade I. Grade II* buildings are particularly important buildings of more than special interest; 5.5% of listed buildings are Grade II*. Grade II buildings are nationally important and of special interest; 92% of all listed buildings are in this class and it is the most likely grade of listing for a home owner.
