What is a Local Listing?

A local list is a register of buildings which are not protected through designation. Such buildings are known as “non designated heritage assets”.

Buildings making up such lists are also known as “Community Listed Buildings”

Local lists are lists of buildings which are of architectural and historical interest but which do not possess the ‘special interest’ required to merit statutory listing.

Councils should weigh up the impact of any application which either directly or indirectly impacts on a non designated heritage asset, and determine whether it causes any harm or loss to the asset.

Council has discretionary powers to draw up a local list and bespoke policies for non designated heritage assets.
