GN08-15 Heritage: 'Local Listing' of heritage by local authorities in England and Wales

Local authorities are able to create 'local lists' of heritage assets which are not significant enough to qualify for national listing/scheduling but are felt to be of sufficient local significance to be taken into account in planning decisions.  Less than a third have actually adopted local lists, though more may do so in future.  Local listing gives this heritage a degree of protection, and may affect (positively or negatively) owners and neighbouring owners.  This Guidance Note explains how local listing can be carried out, what it means, and how members can be involved in, or influence, the process.
