Local List of Heritage Assets
Meeting: 06/03/2017 - Cabinet (Item 77)
The Assistant Director, Regeneration and Culture, submitted a report which advised Cabinet of progress with developing and publishing a list of local heritage assets.
At its meeting in January 2014, Cabinet had agreed the criteria and adoption process for developing a local list of non-designated heritage assets. The purpose of the list is to record assets which contribute to the cultural heritage and character of the area, but are not subject to statutory designation. Inclusion on the list does not bring any additional consent requirement over and above those required for planning permission, however, it can help to influence planning decisions in a way that conserves and enhances the asset in line with the requirements of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF).
Each of the nominations received had been subject to detailed assessment against the criteria by an expert panel. The panel’s recommendations were then subject to further public consultation. Four assets had been recommended for inclusion on the list; White Rock Gardens (East of Falaise Road), Wellington Square, Linton Gardens and the Bohemia Estate. It is intended that assets will continue to be added to the list in the future.
RESOLVED that Cabinet notes the context and progress made in developing this first list of local heritage assets, contained in Appendix A to the Assistant Director, Regeneration and Culture, report. That this list is published on the council’s website.
The reason for this decision was:
The mechanism for the local list process was agreed by Cabinet in 2014 and the process has generated the first list of local heritage assets.
