Can you help populate our list of historically significant Leyland buildings?

Locally listed buildings: residents’ views sought

ARCHITECTUALLY, archaeologically, or historically significant buildings in Leyland and Farington are the subject of a new council consultation.

South Ribble Borough Council (SRBC) wants to hear from residents by 6 April 2018 – do you agree with their shortlist of buildings that fall into these categories?

The ‘Local List of Non-Designated Heritage Assets’ comprises of ‘locally listed’ buildings, structures and features that have 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.

Councillor Cliff Hughes, cabinet member for Strategic Planning and Housing, said: “We’re relying on the expert local knowledge of our residents to help us finalise the Local List.

“I encourage everyone to get in touch – there may be a particular building which you have strong personal ties to, or know the history of, which would be great to hear about.

“We’ve already worked extensively on the current draft of the list, but want to be certain that all historically important buildings have been considered.”

Residents can make their representations known by emailing: ldf@southribble.gov.uk.

Written feedback should be sent to: Planning Policy, South Ribble Borough Council, The Civic Centre, West Paddock, Leyland, PR25 1DH.

The latest version of the Local List is available to view at The Civic Centre and in Leyland Library.

The consultation can be viewed on our website here
