Buildings of Local Interest


Nomination for inclusion of the Local Register of Buildings of Local Interest

Buildings of Local Interest, is a local designation that will reinforce efforts to preserve the character and appearance of the District. It enables the special interest of these buildings/structures to be properly considered against development proposals submitted to the District Council.

It should be noted that inclusion on a local register is not the same as being Nationally Listed. Inclusion on the local register will not alter the existing planning controls that already apply to that building/structure. It will simply change the level of consideration given to ensuring that development affecting it is appropriate and carefully considered.

The Council has produced a guidance note which explains the nomination process and the criteria that should be used.

If you have any queries, or need any additional information, please contact the Conservation Officer on 01353 665555.
