Public invited to nominate favourite buildings for heritage list

Nominate your favourite local building to be added to the council’s Local Heritage List before 28th January

Ye Olde Rose and Crowne pub in Walthamstow is currently on the council’s Local Heritage List, which celebrates buildings with historical, cultural or architectural significance.

Ever been stopped in your tracks by the beauty of a local building? Don’t miss your chance to make sure it gets its dues.

The council has invited the public to nominate their favourite buildings for its Local Heritage List, which celebrates “characterful and historic” buildings and structures in the borough.

All you need to do to nominate a building is provide the address of the building, and state why you are nominating it as well as send a photo in. The best photos will feature in an exhibition sometime next year, the council has said.

According to the council, the new heritage list will be a “significant upgrade” on the current version, as it will feature pictures, be indexed according to ward, and be more user friendly.

Nominations will be assessed and reviewed based on their architectural, historical, and cultural significance.

A building or structure with architectural significance may have, for example, been designed by a prominent architect, or represent a rare architectural style in the borough.

Meanwhile, a building or structure with historical significance may be substantially older than surrounding buildings. It may have also been the site of a historic event, or been associated with a notable person in the past.

The council plans to announce new additions to the list at a special launch event in the summer.

Nominations are open until Sunday 28th January. Send your nominations here
