Register of locally important buildings and structures

Impact of the local register

Being on the register:

  • does not provide addition planning controls
  • will not prevent change or a development taking place
  • does not affect permitted development rights
  • will inform any planning decisions by considering its conservation as a heritage asset. 

Maintaining a register or list is a recognised way for local councils and communities to identify and celebrate their valued historic environment.

The register is one of many tools available to us to identify and protect buildings and areas alongside national designations, such as listed buildings, historic parks, gardens and local conservation areas.

The register is a consistent and accountable way of identifying local heritage assets for the benefit of the borough which allows for opportunities to become involved in local heritage and helps communities to give their views.

More information on local designation is on the Historic England website.
