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).

We maintain 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.

Southampton City Council's policy on locally listed buildings and development is outlined in the Local Plan (policy HE4). See also the English Heritage web site.

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 this document: The Local List. 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. More information about these criteria is available on the Local list criteria for inclusion page.

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. A proposal form is available here: Local List Proposal Form and Guidance notes.
