Alterations on Listed Buildings
Alterations and maintenance to listed buildings require specialist skills and knowledge about the historic materials used in the original construction.
Period buildings will naturally move due to thermal expansion and contraction of the materials originally used. Adding inappropriate modern materials or completing repair work without knowledge about the historic building process can cause further damage to the structure of the building.
Listed buildings, period buildings and properties of historical interest should be maintained and restored using original features and materials to preserve the character of the building.
Period buildings which retain their original features are more desirable on the housing market than properties that have been refurbished with modern installations.
Listed buildings are structures and properties which have been protected to preserve their historical importance and special design features. Owners of listed buildings are not able to make significant alterations without listed building authority consent.
