Show all parts of this guide

2. How does a building become listed?

Historic England is responsible for listing buildings of special architectural or historic interest.

To request a building to be listed you have to apply direct to Historic England.

There is no statutory right to appeal against a listing decision. Listed buildings are occasionally delisted by Historic England.
