Heritage at Risk
Heritage At Risk is a national survey compiled by Historic England. A register is published annually which includes Grade I and II* Listed Buildings, Conservation Areas, Registered Parks and Gardens, Registered Battlefields and Scheduled Monuments that are considered to be 'at risk'.
The 2018 register shows that Newcastle has 11 Listed Buildings, 1 Registered Battlefield, 2 Registered Park & Gardens and 2 Scheduled Monuments which are deemed to be 'at risk'.
Historic England also continues to promote the requirement for a local 'at risk' register. This extends the concept of 'at risk' to all Grade II Listed Buildings.
Monitoring by the City Council of all 'Local Heritage at Risk' has taken place since 1990, with surveys undertaken periodically. This information allows a Local Authority register of all Grade II 'Buildings at Risk' to be maintained and inform future monitoring. It also forms vital baseline data for undertaking a future comprehensive review of Heritage at Risk.

Heritage at Risk celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2018.
Between 1997 and 2003, The Grainger Town Project encouraged property owners to invest in their buildings and stop the decay and decline that the area had been suffering for many years. All seven buildings on the Heritage at Risk Register have been removed. As prominent, underused buildings were refurbished and converted to new uses, employment prospects improved, and economic development and environmental improvements followed.
