What does it mean if a building is listed?

A listed building is a structure protected by law. This protection does not stop the building from changing. It attempts to prevent alterations that would put at risk the significance of that specific building.

Due to its statutory protection, damage to a listed building could be prosecuted. Before carrying out works in a listed building, you should ensure that this won’t affect the significance of your listed building. Contact your local authority if you are unclear.
