Specialist Builders For Listed Buildings – Lime Specialists

Many of our clients were surprisingly unsure about what listed category their property comes under. We have included a short description which will help break down the classification of historical and listed buildings.

Grade 1 listed buildings are of great interest and count as a very small percentage of listed buildings. Around 2.5% of all listed buildings in Somerset come under the grade 1 category. Grade 2* listed buildings are relatively the same and carry a special interest. Approximately 5.5% of listed buildings in Somerset are classified as grade 2*. Grade 2 listed buildings are more likely to be that of homeowners property, due to the fact that they are still of interest but maybe not as old or historic as grade 1 or grade 2*. A grade 2 listing is the most common category of listed buildings counting for around 92% in Somerset.

On the whole most people think that a historical or listed building can't be touched or requires great difficulty to change. That is true to an extent. However, all it means is that you will have to apply for permission to make any changes and alterations to protect the 'special interest' of the building itself. Local authorities will usually consider other factors before making a decision, such as the sites heritage, building safety and condition, function, etc. Please contact with Sure Build Restoration if you would like any guidance in this area.
