In addition to the Statutory List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest', Dudley Council itself compiles a “Local List” of buildings of historic or architectural significance that are considered to make a particular contribution to Local Distinctiveness.
The bulk of the Borough’ s historic buildings, including industrial archaeological remains, were built after 1840 and so will often not meet the national criteria necessary for inclusion on the statutory lists. This does not, however, diminish their importance in terms of the local historic character of the many different townships which make up Dudley Borough. The “Local List” which stands at over 400 items has, therefore, been compiled to provide a measure of protection to the most important of these historic buildings.
Although controls are not as strict as those related to the statutory list the Council is committed to resisting proposals to demolish or adversely alter Locally Listed Buildings. This policy is set out in the Unitary Development Plan - Policy HE5.
The Historic Environment Team are happy to be contacted for advice on whether proposed changes to a property will require permission and in relation to any other related technical advice or assistance you may require.
