A 'Local List' identifies and protects buildings, structures, monuments and landscapes which are locally valued but do not warrant national protection. Demolition, alteration or extension of local list buildings would not require listed building consent but their inclusion within the list carries a presumption in favour of protection and conservation. Inclusion on a local list would also be a material consideration in the determination of planning applications affecting such buildings.
Historic and architectural evidence for each of the nominated buildings/ structures in the Local List has been researched and a site visit undertaken. A selection panel, comprising elected members of the Planning & Regulatory Committee, planning officers, historic environment professionals and representatives of local organisations have also reviewed the buildings/ structures.
It is the intention that the Local List be updated annually. If appropriate, more frequent up-dating may be proposed to deal with any urgent cases or as a result of conservation appraisals recommending entries within a particular area.
