 A Local List of Heritage Assets for Carlisle District

Carlisle District has over 1,500 listed buildings, however, there are many other heritage assets of architectural, historic or archaeological interest throughout the District that do not meet the strict criteria for national designation. These buildings do however make a significant, local contribution to the historic environment and sense of place. 

Carlisle City Council recognises the valuable contribution that these assets make to the historic environment.  We are working with local communities, together we aim to: develop a set of selection criteria to help identify these locally important heritage assets; and compile and maintain a Local List, which will in time be available on this webpage. 

A Local List will help to highlight those places which local communities feel to be worthy of preserving when it comes to drawing up Neighbourhood Plans or when planning applications for specific sites are being considered.

If you would like to nominate a building for the Local List, which will be considered by the Local Heritage List Review Panel, please click on the link below to download a nomination form. Completed forms should be returned either in writing to: Heritage and Urban Design Officer, Investment and Policy Team, Carlisle City Council, Civic Centre, Carlisle, CA3 8QG or via email marked for the attention of the Heritage and Urban Design Officer to: [email protected]




The Local List Panel

Buildings nominated for the Local List will be put before an independent panel, consisting of local experts in heritage and architecture, as well as City Council officers. The Local List Panel will meet at least once per year, depending on the number of nominations received. The recommendations of the Local List Panel will then go before the Council's Executive, who will have the final say on which buildings will be included on the Local List. For more details on the Local List Panel, including any past meeting minutes and agendas, please visit the Local List Panel page.

The List

Buildings that have been recommended for inclusion, and have been ratified by the City Council's Executive, will be available to view on the Local List. The List will be reviewed at least once per year, and possibly more often depending on the number of nominations received. There are currently no buildings on the Local List, but there are a number of nominations that have been generated as part of the pilot scheme that ran during 2017. As nominations are received, the Local Heritage List Review Panel will set a date and the first additions to the list will be considered. The Local List will be available to view on this page once it is ready. The List will be a living document, and will be updated annually. 

Local List Pilot

A pilot scheme for the Local List was originally carried out with officers working with community groups and volunteers in Denton Holme and Warwick Bridge to compile a Local List for these areas.  The pilot scheme established the process for nominating a building for the list and the terms of reference that would guide how these nominations would be considered.
