Adding buildings to the Local List
In order for a building to be included on the list it must be scored against certain criteria, comprising:
- The age of the building
- Its condition and/or completeness
- The design character and architectural merit
- The use of materials
- Its scenic value
- Historic Association.
Conservation Areas Review
The Council is currently reviewing its conservation areas and considering designating new areas. As it undertakes each review, the list of local buildings is compiled for that parish.
The Council will compile a list of candidate buildings for inclusion in the consultation draft version of the Conservation Area Appraisal. Local residents can suggest additional buildings for inclusion leading up to and during the consultation exercise. The Council will then evaluate any suggested buildings against the criteria.
Parishes putting together neighbourhood planning documents may wish to put forward buildings and structures which could merit inclusion on the Local List.
There are particular ways in which this can be recognised in neighbourhood planning documents, and further information can be sought by contacting the Council's Planning Policy team on 01327 871100 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Subject to meeting the criteria, these can then be added to the Council’s Local List when the conservation area for that location is reviewed.
