We have a number of buildings and structures that may not meet the criteria for nationally listed buildings at present but do add to the cultural heritage of our borough. The result is that many fine buildings and structures are unprotected by the statutory listing process. In recognition of this we identified and designated them as local listed buildings, now know as local heritage assets. There is more information about local listed heritage assets on the Historic England website.
Which buildings are designated local heritage assets?
- you can find out if a building is local heritage asset by using our online mapping system.
Can I alter, extend or demolish a local heritage assets?
There are no special planning controls over works to a local heritage assets. However, in determining any planning application that would affect a local heritage assets, we will expect development to respect and promote the conservation and enhancement of the heritage asset and its setting.
