What are the restrictions for development of a grade 2 listed building?
Almost anything your local Planning/Conservation Office can dream up. There is apparently no limit to the areas the Local Authority Planners/Conservation Officers can interprete that they have responsibility for any category of Listing. The initial listing need only refer to your residence by name and include minimalist information on one feature and you can rest assured that this will be diligently applied to all aspects the that the Local Authority Planners/Conservation sees fit. I speak from bitter experience as a joint owner of a Grade II Listed residence. It really is time to shake up Local Government to make them responsible for their actions. They are reimbursed with "industry indexed" salaraies, terms and conditions, have a Gold Plated Pension courtesy of the TaxPayer and absolutely no responsibility for their actions
