Listed Buildings are those buildings which are considered to be of special architectural or historic interest, and are included on a national list published by English Heritage. A building must be more than 30 years old and meet certain criteria to be eligible for inclusion on this statutory list.
The Council has a statutory duty to regulate demolitions or alterations to listed buildings. It also gives special consideration to the impact of any proposed development in the vicinity of a listed building and considers listed building issues in the preparation of local planning policy.
