Local List of buildings of Local Architectural or Historic Interest

Local List of buildings of Local Architectural or Historic Interest

What is the Local List?

This is a list of buildings, structures, parks and gardens (including cemeteries and open spaces) that have special local architectural or historic interest which are an important part of your local heritage. They are different from Listed Buildings  and Registered Parks and Gardens , such as the Theatre Royal or Leazes Park, which are recognised as being of national importance. Buildings and parks on the Local List may not be as important as those on the national list, but they are special to Newcastle.

Entries on the Local List were assessed using similar criteria to those used for Listed Buildings and Registered Parks and Gardens but from a local perspective.



Why do it? What does being on the List mean?

Unlike Listed Buildings or Registered Parks and Gardens, being included on the Local List does not provide any additional planning controls. However, it does recognise their importance and before any planning decisions are made their special local architectural or historic interest will be taken into account.
