Local Heritage List

I am writing to inform local councils about the Local Heritage List: a new project to record heritage assets in Somerset and Exmoor. This is managed by the South West Heritage Trust with input from partners in local government and heritage, including Somerset County Council, each district council, and Exmoor National Park Authority.

The scheme will give special, ‘locally listed’ status to distinctive and noteworthy buildings, sites, and monuments across Somerset and Exmoor. It is a chance to recognise places with cultural value in our area, and help preserve our diverse local heritage.

I would be most grateful if you inform your South Somerset council about this initiative. The South West Heritage Trust is seeking nominations from the public, as well as community organisations, and welcomes assistance in publicising this opportunity for engagement.

Later in the year you will receive a formal consultation from your local planning authority regarding the Local Heritage List technical handbook. This will provide the planning support, but in the meantime the project is open to nominations.

Please find attached a press release, poster, and ‘Q&A’ document which explains the Local Heritage List in more detail.

Best wishes,
Dr Hattie Induni
