Where can I find details on what is allowed to be done to a grade ii* prop.?

I’ve done a Google search but I’d like a brief concise overview.

In this instance I’d like to find out if a small (approx the size of an average mans hand) box can be put outside. It wld be out of site generally(unless soneone knew where to look) and then a small single cable wld run from the box through a window frame (maybe about 60cm away)

From watching Homes under the Hammer I would think you will need to speak to the local planning office.They seem to make up their own rules!.
Unauthorised works to a Listed Building would be a criminal offence. You should phone or mail the Local Planning Authority for advice. Definitely don't go ahead without checking with those who will come after you if you get it wrong. Your proposal sounds possible, but the LPA might offer helpful advice on how to overcome any potential problems. BTW internal works might also need Listed Building Consent. I'm glad I don't have a Listed Building!
Whenever I've worked on 2* houses, I've always been surprised by just how much CAN be done.... provide you have "Listed Building Consent".

I would guess they would look at it much the same way they do with satellite dishes, which for obvious reasons are often not allowed.

I don't think a Conservation Office can honestly be expected to give you a definitive opinion. That would be unfair to ask.

The only way is to apply for "Listed Building Consent". That would force a decision without expecting one individual to decide.
