Listed buildings

The Secretary of State is required to compile lists of buildings of special architectural or historic interest for the guidance of local planning authorities.

The current list for Brentwood was approved on 9 December 1994, following a comprehensive resurvey of buildings in the Borough. There are 512 listed buildings within the Borough, consisting of:

  • 12 buildings of Grade I (buildings of exceptional interest)
  • 27 buildings of Grade II* (particularly important buildings of more than special interest)
  • 473 buildings of Grade II (buildings of special interest, which warrant every effort being made to preserve them).
