Proposed Additions to the Local List

Closed 16 Feb 2011

Opened 5 Jan 2011

Overview

The local list is compiled by the Council and there are currently there are 35 buildings and structures in the London Borough Sutton identified.  While they may not be of sufficient interest to warrant inclusion on the national register of Listed Buildings it is still desirable for them to be recognised.

Following a call for nominations of buildings or structures which are of local architectural or historic interest across the borough, the Council received over 120 nominations, which covered over 470 buildings and structures. The nominations have been reviewed and over 55 of them are now proposed as possible additions to the local list (covering over 180 buildings and structures).

The Council thinks that all the buildings/structures proposed for inclusion make an important contribution to the character and understanding of the history of the Borough. They are special and it is important to make sure that they are retained and where possible enhanced. Listing helps mark and celebrates a building's special architectural and historic interest, and while no additional planning controls are imposed on locally listed buildings or structures, Council policy encourages their retention. When determining planning applications for locally listed buildings and structures, the Council expects all proposals for alterations and extensions to be sympathetic to the building's architectural character.
