Parish Lists of Local Heritage Assets

The District contains over a thousand nationally listed buildings, which are protected by law. In addition to these listed buildings, there are many historic buildings which, although they may not meet the strict criteria for national listing, possess local value because of their architectural and historic interest.

We are currently developing Parish Lists of Local Heritage Assets to identify and celebrate these locally important buildings.

Unlike nationally listed buildings, inclusion on a Local List does not of itself bring any additional consent requirements over and above the existing requirement for planning permission however, it does mean that a building's heritage significance will be a material consideration in the planning process.

Individual lists are being developed for each parish. The approved selection criteria are reproduced on the inside cover of each Parish List.
