Review of the local list
The council is undertaking a 5 year review of the Local List of Heritage assets. This will update existing list entries where new information has come to light and assess those further nominations that have been put forward within the past five years since the Local List was comprehensively reviewed. There is also a six-week opportunity to nominate further heritage assets (building/structures and parks/garden) that were not nominated in the last review.
All nominations must be made using the nomination form which sets out the criteria for local listing.
Find out how we protect the personal information you give us when making a nomination.
Further information on this can be found in the Planning Advice Note at the bottom of the local list of heritage assets page. Nomination forms must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and must be received by no later than Monday 7 December 2020. (Please note that potential heritage assets that were nominated for inclusion in the last review but did not meet the criteria for inclusion will not be re-assessed).
