Keeping the heat in your home and insulating your home well is more important nowadays as the price of gas and electricity have gone up so much. One of the best ways to keep the heat in your home is with good quality double glazing provided by someone like this double glazing Bridgwater based company https://choicetradeframes.co.uk/upvc-windows-doors/bridgwater
If you live in an older building that is classed as a listed building however, it may not be as simple as booking an appointment and getting your old windows replaced with new double-glazed ones. Listed buildings are protected due to their historical significance, so before you can go ahead and get new windows put in, you need to get permission to do so. If you do not do this, it is possible that you could be stopped from proceeding and ordered to put back changes that you have made.
Permission to make changes is known as listed building consent. It may be that you can have double glazing, but you are unlikely to be allowed UPVC frames for example. Your first port of call when you start this process should be your local council’s planning department.
Once you have done this, you will be assigned a person who you will be able to discuss the changes that you wish to make to the property with. They will then be able to advise you on what is likely to be allowed and not allowed. Once you have done this, you can submit your form and wait to hear back.
