Local List of Heritage Assets
A revised and updated Local List of Heritage Assets was adopted on 18th June 2015. This is a list of buildings, parks and gardens considered to be of special interest, because of their local historic, architectural, design or townscape value.
Adoption of the revised Local List of Heritage Assets followed a call for nominations from the public. Many local amenity societies and residents nominated buildings, parks and gardens they considered to be of local interest. The council would like to thank those groups and individuals who submitted nominations. The nominations were assessed against approved selection criteria, through which a draft local list was produced. The final local list was adopted following consultation on this draft local list.
Local Listing is different to statutory listing. It does not provide further legislative controls and does not affect when planning permission is required. However, when planning permission is required, the 'special interest' of a locally listed asset will be taken into account.

Specific thematic criteria have been produced for street lighting [PDF 1.2mb] and letterboxes [PDF 478kb] in the city, due to the number of historic examples that survive. The thematic criteria document in each case provides a list of known examples that have been included on the local list.
The Local List of Heritage Assets Planning Advice Note (PAN) 07 provides further information on what Local Listing means, the implications of inclusion, selection criteria and process for review.
The revised Local List of Heritage Assets follows a call for nominations from the public (2013) and consultation on a draft local list (2015). The results of the consultation (PDF 113KB) were considered in producing the final local list.
The Local List will be reviewed on a 5 year cycle, with the next review due in 2020.
