Thinking of making changes to your historic home?

If you are thinking about making changes to an older property, such as replacing windows or doors or adding an extension, you may want to refer to English Heritage’s website where you can find practical tips and advice on what to consider, who to consult, and whether you are likely to need permission.

English Heritage highlights twelve of the most common types of work considered by owners of historic homes, and sets out basic advice on what to consider and whether they are likely to need consent. The pages include “I want to extend my house”; “I want to convert my loft” and “I want to alter the area around my house”
