Local List

What is the Local List?

The Local List identifies and provides protection to heritage assets, including buildings and structures, which are of more local interest and are not on the statutory Listed Building list compiled by Historic England.

The pdf Local List (541 KB)  is organised by street address so it is straightforward to check whether an asset is included. The Local List is regularly updated.

Anyone can nominate an asset for inclusion in the Local List as long as it meets the criteria of architectural, archaeological, artistic or historic interest, or makes a strong contribution to the townscape. Please provide any supporting information you have, including photographs. Nominations can be made using the  pdf Local List nomination form (40 KB) .
