Non-designated heritage assets
South Ribble Borough Council has prepared a Local List of Non-Designated Heritage Assets for the Leyland and Farington area and would like to know what you think.
‘Locally Listed’ buildings, structures and features are those identified by members of the public and the local planning authority as having special local, architectural, archaeological or historic interest. The Local List does not provide the Council with additional powers, but serves as a strong evidence base when assessing planning applications, and acknowledges the increased importance of the asset itself.
Non-designated heritage assets represent the tier below designated heritage assets – in Leyland’s case Listed Buildings, Conservation Areas and Scheduled Park & Gardens, which enjoy a higher level of statutory protection.
Suggestions for the list were invited during 2017 via the local news, social media and with the assistance of local heritage groups, and a draft list has been compiled. The list so far is available to view at The Civic Centre and Leyland Library.
Public consultation will be undertaken for a period of 6 weeks, ending on the 6th April after which time in house assessment of suggestions will be made and a final Local List compiled. The List will then be formally adopted by the Council.
