Owning a Listed Building
Being responsible for an historic building is a privilege. It represents a commitment to the nation’s heritage and your own contribution to preserving it for future generations to enjoy.
Each historic building is unique. Once part of its fabric is destroyed or damaged it can never be genuinely replaced.
The intrinsic value to society of our historic buildings and areas is recognised by the Government, Local Authorities and Heritage Organisations. A legal framework exists to help guide essential change whilst protecting and enhancing the special character of the buildings we value.
If you own a listed building, please discuss any proposals with the Conservation Officer who will be able to advise.
Please contact the Conservation Officer by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The Conservation Officer is normally only present one day each week so it may take a while before you get a response.
