Online council-owned heritage assets map now available

A new map of council-owned heritage assets in the city has been published on our website.

The map can be used to find information about historic council-owned landmarks such as street furniture, arches, groynes, bollards, milestones, bus shelters, clock towers, gates, fountains, lamp posts, letterboxes, monuments, war memorials, windmills, tombs, shelters, telephone kiosks, parks and gardens.

You can find out about council-owned assets identified in Historic England’s Listing and our Local List of Heritage Assets by clicking on the purple markers in the map to display an information pop-up. Users can also search the map by address or area name.

The map currently contains nearly 500 entries. It could grow further when the updated Local List of Heritage Assets is reviewed by the Tourism, Equalities, Communities and Culture committee (TECC) for approval on 9 March 2023.

Councillor Martin Osborne, Co-chair of the TECC committee, said: “As a council we are responsible for protecting a large number of heritage assets. From iconic buildings to historic letterboxes, they contribute so much to making Brighton & Hove a unique place to live or work in, and the visitors they attract make a major contribution to our local economy.

“This map is not only an interesting source of information for residents and those planning to visit the city but also helps us to better manage council-owned heritage assets.

“It is another example of how we are using technology to work more efficiently, make information easily accessible to more of our community, and maintain our valuable built heritage.”

The Heritage Assets Map can be viewed on the Heritage pages of our website.
