listed buildings in England are graded at three levels, from the higher Grade I to Grade II* and the lower Grade II. Everyone can nominate buildings, but it is the Secretary of State that gives the final approval, advised by Historic England. The latter also maintains the List that gathers a file for each listed building.
During the early nineteenth century, Thomas Cubitt saw a long commute from London to Clapham as an opportunity. His mission was to convert the empty land between Clapham and Brixton into a new upper-class neighbourhood.
If you own a listed building, you could benefit from the service of a heritage consultant. Learn more about what they can offer at different stages. From buying, redesigning, applying for planning and achieving your dream home.
If your proposed works affect a listed building you’ll need listed building consent. But if the works affect also the outside, you’ll need to add a planning application.
