Review of the Local List of Heritage Assets:
The council is currently carrying out a review of the Local List of Heritage Assets. 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.
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.
A call for nominations was held in 2013. Over 500 nominations have now been assessed against the approved selection criteria [pdf 30kb]. Summary lists of the draft results are available below:
- Draft local list of heritage assets [pdf 113kb] (those nominations considered to meet the selection criteria)
- Draft list of nominations considered not to meet the criteria [pdf 116kb].
The full assessment for each nomination is available below. The assessments are listed alphabetically by street name. Please click on the letter for the street in order to view the assessment.
A number of thematic surveys have also been undertaken as part of the review:
|Brighton Board Schools [pdf 114kb]||Street Lighting [pdf 1.1mb]|
|Letterboxes [pdf 108kb]||Telephone Kiosks [pdf 225kb]|
A draft Planning Advice Note (PAN) [pdf 230kb] has been produced to accompany the local list. This gives further information on local listing, its implications and the process of review.
Comments were invited on the draft local list between 2nd February and 15th March 2015. These comments are now being considered in producing a final recommended local list. This will be brought to Economic Development and Culture Committee for approval.
