What do you need to know about period property restoration or conservation?

Repairs and alterations to period and listed buildings often require the use of older methods and techniques. There are additional regulations for altering listed buildings when it comes to getting planning permission. Any alterations to the building's character are likely to require Listed Building permission, even if you just want to install a fence. It is a good idea to have your property assessed by a listed buildings specialist, as they will not only be able to tell you what specialised tradesmen you will require, but can also give you advice on the bureaucratic side of things.

There are a lot of sources of advice for people interested in period building restoration and conservation. The Conservation Register is a database of conservation businesses in the UK, though it is not free to use. Organisations like the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB) can provide help, such as pointing you to similar buildings and projects in your local area. This kind of project requires a lot of planning to get right, so do all of this well in advance of work starting.
