The ground floor is often allowed to be changed for shops.

Would have thought the lower façade would be more in sympathy with the rest of the building.

It happens quite a lot in shopping streets: the ground floor can be butchered.

Perhaps that may indicate slack preservation regulation/legislation.

More things were allowed up to the 1970s and 1980s, but a monument status doesn't mean the building cannot be used or altered. And sometimes monuments have been changed and altered many times in the past.

Monument status is pretty useless without including a preservation clause, in England you simply cannot alter a listed building without permission and the law is enforced too.
