Locally listed buildings

Locally listed buildings have been identified as positive elements within the local environment.

They are of historic or architectural merit but do not benefit from the same protection as statutory listed buildings.

They are however protected locally by planning policy. Designation is about recognising what gives the building its special interest and then managing its future. Good management of locally listed buildings can lead to better neighbourhoods, so the council will seek to ensure that their special character is protected and enhanced.

Buildings included on the list were proposed by national amenity societies, local history societies, residents groups and private individuals. Each addition has been assessed against the selection criteria.

Selection criteria

The council's selection criteria for local listing were developed using national guidance and following public consultation. The selection criteria attempt to recognise those heritage assets of local importance and which contribute to the distinctive character of Barnet's historic environment. Each entry has been assessed against the agreed criteria.
