In Northern Ireland, the term listed building refers to a building or other structure officially designated as being of "special architectural or historic interest".[1] Grade B+ structures are those considered to be "buildings which might have merited grade A status but for detracting features such as an incomplete design, lower quality additions or alterations. Also included are buildings that because of exceptional features, interiors or environmental qualities are clearly above the general standard set by grade B buildings. A building may merit listing as grade B+ where its historic importance is greater than a similar building listed as grade B."[2]

Listing began later in Northern Ireland than in the rest of the UK; the first provision for listing was contained in the Planning (Northern Ireland) Order 1972,[3] and the current legislative basis for listing is the Planning (Northern Ireland) Act 2011. Under Section 80 of the Act, the Department for Communities is required to compile lists of buildings of "special architectural or historic interest". The responsibility for the listing process rests with the Historic Environment Division (HED), a division within the Department.[4]

An initial survey of Northern Ireland's building stock was begun in 1969,in anticipation of the legislation.[5] By the time of the completion of this First Survey in 1994, the listing process had developed considerably, and it was therefore decided to embark upon a Second Survey to update and cross-check the original information. As of April 2016, the Second Survey had completed around 60% of the region.[5] Information gathered during this survey, relating to both listed and unlisted buildings, is entered into the publicly accessible Northern Ireland Buildings Database.[5] A range of listing criteria, which aim to define architectural and historic interest, have been developed and are published as Annex C of Planning Policy Statement 6 (March 2011), and are used to determine whether or not to list a building.[4]

Once listed, Listed building consent must be obtained from local authority prior to any alteration to such a structure. The authority must pay 'due regard' to the architectural and historic interest of the building when considering proposals for change[6] There are approximately 8,500 listed buildings in Northern Ireland, representing 2% of the total building stock.[4] Of these, around 580 are listed at Grade B+.

County Tyrone covers 3,155 square kilometres (1,218 sq mi), and has a population of around 166,500. The County has 110 Grade B+ listed buildings.
