Within Bath and North East Somerset (B&NES) there are a wide range of buildings, structures and landscape features that provide a valuable contribution to the local character and distinctiveness of the area. These features are termed “non-designated heritage assets” or “locally listed heritage assets”. 

B&NES has prepared this draft Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) in relation to the identification, recording and management of locally listed heritage assets within the Council’s area. The document is principally about the process involved in selecting any buildings/ structures or landscape features that may be of local value. It provides guidance on how to go about nominating local heritage assets, how the selection of them will be undertaken and how they will be recorded.  The document also aims to raise the profile and encourage recognition of the contribution that local heritage assets make to the special character of B&NES.

Why are we consulting?

This consultation is your chance to comment on the SPD and the process involved in identifying local heritage assets. The draft document provides the criteria for selection of local heritage assets. It also explains the process of nomination and how assets will be considered and selected for inclusion on the local list and how they will be recorded.

We would welcome receiving your views on the process being proposed through the SPD between 23 April and 4 June 2018.

Following the public consultation, all contributions will be scrutinised and the SPD amended accordingly. It will then require formal approval and adoption by the Council for development management purposes.
