Locally listed buildings

This page contains advice and guidance on buildings included on the list of locally important buildings of architectural or historic interest (the Local List).

The Historic Environment Team maintains a list of locally important historic buildings known as the Local List. This is separate from the national list of listed buildings held by the Secretary of State for Culture Media and Sport. There is no statutory protection for buildings on the Local List. Where planning permission is required for the redevelopment of a locally listed building, it may need to be professionally recorded beforehand.

The original Local List, approved in 1998, covered the area of the Single Regeneration Project II (St Mary's to Portswood). On 19th January 2009, Southampton City Council approved additions to the Local List. For all buildings on the Local List, see the related document at the foot of this page. For a map, see the Southampton Online Maps web site.

The criteria for inclusion of buildings on the Local List are:

- Authenticity

- Architectural significance

- Historic significance

- Townscape significance

For more information about these criteria, follow the link to the left.

We welcome your views and suggestions for buildings to add to the Local List. This may take the form of an individual response, or could be a proposal from a group, society or a school. Copies of the proposal form are available from the Civic Centre and main libraries in the city, and the form can also be downloaded from one of the document links at the foot of this page.

Southampton City Council's policy on locally listed buildings and development is outlined in the Local Plan (policy HE4).
