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.  Nonetheless make a significant 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.

A pilot Phase is underway

Officers are working with community groups and volunteers in Denton Holme and Warwick Bridge to compile a Local List for these areas.  The pilot phase will allow the procedures to be adapted where necessary. 


What happens next?


Nominations will be assessed by an independent panel selected from a wide range of expertise, using the established criteria. Successful nominations will be added to the draft Local List, details of which will appear on the Council website.


If there is some dispute over inclusion of a prospective asset, the independent panel will make a final decision on whether an asset is worthy of inclusion, based on the selection criteria as outlined within this document.


Following the development of the draft Local List, a further public engagement will take place, with owners of the proposed heritage assets and members of the public being given a final chance to review the list.


The Local List will be ratified by the City Council and published on line.


The list will be updated as new nominations are added to the list and reviewed on an annual basis by the independent Heritage Assets Panel.
