EH: Local listing consultation

English Heritage seeks comments on draft guidance for the identification of significant local heritage assets, and the management of these assets through a local list, with the closing date for responses on13 May 2011.

About the Good Practice Guide

Local listing supports the policies and guidance provided by Planning Policy Statement 5: Planning for the Historic Environment and its supporting Historic Environment Planning Practice Guide in relation to the contribution of non-designated heritage assets to the character of the historic environment. ?The guide is intended to encourage a transparent and consistent approach to the process of creating and managing a local list by:

  • strengthening the role of locally listed heritage assets as material considerations in deciding the outcome of planning decisions
  • renewing the role of local listing as a means of encouraging communities to identify and manage aspects of their local heritage
  • improving access to clear and comprehensive information about locally listed heritage assets, including via Historic Environment Records (HER)

The Guide makes reference to case studies, and these will be included in the final version of the Guide, to be published later in the year.
