The legal definition of a listed building is ‘a building of special architectural or historic interest’. Listing is undertaken at national level, by Historic England and the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG). Listed buildings are therefore of national importance.
Listing protects buildings and any of their features that make them special. Listed Building Consent is required for a range of internal and external alterations to listed buildings.
