A building considered to be of historic architectural interest or national importance may be listed and therefore is subject listed building controls when modifications are planned. This is in order to protect the architectural and historic interest of these beautiful buildings.
Listed building controls are a requirement to the normal planning regulations. Additionally, listed building status can also result in the need for planning permission even where it normally wouldn't be required.

Although legislation surrounding listed buildings may seem daunting, with time, patience and vision you can generally achieve a structure that maintains the aesthetic integrity of the listed building.

Glassier will handle permissions on your behalf and will liaise with specialist consultants where deemed necessary.
