What is historic building conservation

A building is listed for its architectural or historic interest if considered to be of national importance and therefore worth protecting. There are three types of listed status for buildings in England and Wales:

– Grade I: of exceptional interest

– Grade II*: particularly important and of more than special interest

– Grade II: of special interest warranting every effort to preserve them

A conservation area is an area of special architectural or historic interest, the character or appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance.
