New Nominations for Hull Local Heritage List

In a bid to revitalise the Hull Local Heritage List (first established in 2006 by Hull City Council), the Council are seeking

new nominations to add to the List. The selection criteria and nomination process for the List can be found on the Council’s dedicated webpage: All nominations

must be made on the official nomination form and should be submitted to the Council by 8th January, 2022.

The National Planning Policy Framework defines a ‘Heritage Asset’ as “A building, monument, site, place, area or landscape identified as having a degree of

significance meriting consideration in planning decisions, because of its heritage interest. It includes designated heritage assets and assets identified by the local planning

authority (including local listing).” Locally listed heritage assets are characterised as non-designated heritage assets and they have no statutory protection in their own right. However, designation on the Local List does afford some additional protection and can be considered as a material planning consideration.

Although the current List is dominated by buildings, other heritage assets can also be considered, such as parks, gardens, cemeteries and below ground archaeology.

What cannot be considered are buildings already on the List, Statutory Listed Buildings, Registered Parks & Gardens and Scheduled Monuments. To find out if a building

is already Locally Listed or Statutory Listed, go to My Hull – My Maps: Hull Parks, Gardens & Archaeology already protected

through other legislation include Pearson Park, East Park, Beverley Gate, Hull Citadel (southern half), Hull Castle and the South Blockhouse.
