WHAT IS A GRADE 2* BUILDING
A Grade 2 listed building is defined as a UK building or structure that is "of special interest, warranting every effort to preserve it". Grade 2 is a classification that can be applied to a wide variety of buildings and other structures, in a range of ages, styles and locations.
A Grade 2* (star) is as above but more significant. Properties achieve Grade 2* listed status often due to one or more specific period features such as a crown post or particularly impressive fireplaces or chimneys which elevate the property's historical significance beyond a Grade II listing.
How does listing affect owners? Listing means there will be extra control over what changes can be made to a building's interior and exterior. Owners will need to apply for Listed Building Consent for most types of work that affect the 'special architectural or historic interest' of their home.
What parts of the building does listing cover? Listing covers a whole building, including the interior, unless parts of it are specifically excluded in the list description.
It can also cover: Other attached structures and fixtures / Later extensions or additions / pre-1948 buildings on land attached to the building. (In the planning system, the term 'curtilage' is used to describe this attached land.) Because all listed buildings are different and unique, what is actually covered by a listing can vary quite widely. It is best, therefore, to check this with your local planning authority and the Listing Officer pertaining to that Authority.
