What is a Locally Listed Heritage Asset?
A Locally Listed Heritage Asset is a building, park, garden or architectural feature considered to be of special interest because of their historic, architectural, design or townscape value.
They are not the same as Listed Buildings which are designated at a national level by Historic England.
In October 2016, a Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) created by Stroud Town Council covering the centre of Stroud was adopted by Stroud District Council. Appendix 5 of the NDP provides the criteria for nominating assets for local listing.
How does Local Listing affect my building?
Unlike Listed building designation, Local Listing is not a legislative control and does not determine whether planning permission is needed. However, when planning permission is required the ‘special interest’ of a locally listed asset will be taken into account by planning officers when considering applications.
Stroud Preservation Trust worked with a group of volunteers who nominated over 100 buildings. A committee of local experts then selected 45 buildings for the first draft list of local heritage assets. Stroud Preservation Trust members provided the text and photographs for each draft list entry.
Consultation on the first draft list of Local Heritage Assets
The consultation period ran from 15th January 2018 to 26th February 2018 and has now closed. Comments are now being analysed and any updates made. The Local List will then be presented to the next Consultations Committee meeting for approval.

Can I add to this list?
If you want to nominate a building, garden or park or townscape feature please fill in a nomination form with as much information as you can and email with a photo to [email protected]. Currently only buildings, features and structures in the Stroud Town Centre NDP area can be considered. There is no need to nominate buildings that are listed – you can check whether a building is listed on the Historic England website.
Nominations will be assessed by a panel of local experts each year in March.
