Buildings listed under the U.K's Grade II* listing category are judged as 'particularly important buildings of more than special interest'. This is one rank above the Grade II listing, defined as 'of special listing, warranting every effort to preserve them', though below the Grade I category of 'buildings of exceptional interest'. The level of listing will obviously affect the way in which you can use or change the building in question and other factors like restrictive covenants in the specific lease can also come into play. However, for all listed buildings there are restrictions on what you may do to the building. Therefore your local planning authority must by law be consulted - and listed building consent obtained - before you can demolish it, alter or extend it in a way that affects its character. Also note that planning permission alone is not sufficient to authorise demolition. Consent is also necessary for alterations or extensions to any structure within the grounds of a listed building and you should consult your local planning authority before starting any work on a listed building, even painting.
