Listed buildings – the basics

A listed building is one that has been mentioned on the Statutory List of Buildings of Special Architectural Historic Interest. A building’s listing will normally highlight what makes it significant to ensure that any future changes do not result in the loss of its heritage.
The History of Listing
The damage to buildings caused by bombing during World War II prompted the first listing of buildings, to determine whether a particular building should be rebuilt if it was damaged.    Shortly after the war, this process was then developed in the Town and Country Planning Act 1947 and the first ‘list’ of buildings was compiled.  The Planning (Listed Buildings and Conversation Areas) Act 1990 altered the laws on granting of planning permission for buildings included those that were listed.
