What is the Local Buildings List?

The Local Buildings List is a list of buildings which are important in a local context but not nationally important enough to have a statutory listing.  The Local Buildings List includes buildings with historic or architectural associations which are particular to the City of Chichester. These could be buildings by an important local architect, a local landmark or buildings associated with a locally important person or event.

The Local Buildings List has been approved as a material planning consideration when dealing with planning applications.  However permitted development rights are not affected by a building's inclusion on the local list so the list cannot be used to control or prevent any alterations carried out under these rights. You can also view locally important list buildings on our web mapping system .

How do I nominate a building to go on the Local Buildings List?

You can still put forward a building for consideration when we next review the list.  First check that your building does not have a statutory listing.  You can do this by searching English Heritage's Images of England website or contacting the District Council.

You can download and complete the nomination form and either email or post it to:
