Locally Listed Buildings

The Village features 14 Locally Listed Buildings. See the list below.

In addition to the Statutory List of Grade I,II and II* buildings which is compiled and maintained by the Department of Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), Guildford Borough Council (GBC) has a list of buildings of special local architectural or historic interest. This is known as the "Local List". Although a building doesn't have any more legal protection if it is on this Local List, the list helps GBC to exercise control over any changes to these buildings and to make sure that the special interest of these properties is not lost.

The Local List includes:

  • Buildings or structures, dating before 1840 which survive in anything like their original condition.
  • Buildings dated between 1840 and 1914 that have a definite quality and character. The use of local styles is particularly relevant when we determine the value of such a building.
  • Buildings dating between 1914 and 1939, which have a particular quality, character or are of local significance.
  • After 1939, outstanding buildings which represent an important architectural style.

Other considerations include:

  • The work of recognised local architects, builders and engineers or buildings which are good examples of local town planning.
  • Examples of identifiable building traditions, techniques and materials that form part of the vernacular or local architectural style.
  • Buildings, which have a landmark and/or group value which contributes to local distinctiveness.
  • Buildings with special historical associations, local or national.
  • Historic buildings of strong architectural interest affected by minor reversible alterations.
  • Buildings that have been documented in recognised publications, for example, 'Pevsner', or have received an architectural or planning award.

Implications for residents and owners:

  • Locally Listed Buildings do not have any additional statutory protection. However, inclusion on the Local List is a material consideration when planning proposals are determined.
  • GBC encourages owners to meet the same principles of conservation and good design that is applied to statutory listed buildings.
  • Buildings of historic significance once lost cannot be replaced and the whole or partial demolition of a Locally Listed Building will be opposed, as will the removal of important external or internal features.
  • Alterations or extension should enhance the character of the original building and special consideration will be given to the importance of maintaining the building's historical and architectural integrity.
  • The setting of a Locally Listed Building will also be taken into account when considering related development proposals and GBC protects these buildings through their local plan policies.


Locally Listed Buildings could be eligible for grants towards repairs including the reinstatement or replacement of prominent external features. For more information visit the GBC website.
