Listed Buildings

Volume 491: debated on Thursday 23 April 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what funding his Department and its agencies provided for the upkeep of (a) Grade I, (b) Grade II and (c) Grade III listed buildings in (i) West Chelmsford constituency, (ii) Essex and (iii) England in the last five years. (269216)

[holding answer 20 April 2009]: Government funding for listed buildings is channelled through English Heritage.

Funding is also provided by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

These organisations operate a range of grant schemes for the repair, not the upkeep or maintenance, of listed buildings. Grade III is not in use as an official classification although some local authorities use it to denote local interest.
