Locally Listed Buildings (Non-Statutory)
These are buildings or structures which are of local architectural or historic interest. The local list is compiled by the Council and is made up of buildings or structures which are locally important. While they may not be of sufficient interest to warrant inclusion on the national register of Listed Buildings it is still desirable for them to be recognised.
Consultation on Proposed Local Listing of 110 London Road, Hackbridge
The council is proposing to add 110 London Road in Hackbridge, known locally as 'Culvers Lodge', to the 'Local List' of important buildings and structures in the borough. The building is a council owned residential dwelling that dates back to at least 1895 and was originally part of the 'Culvers Estate'. The assessment carried out by the council concluded that the property could meet the criteria for local listing. Background documents relating to the building and the proposed local listing can be found at the below link. Alternative hard copies are available for inspection at the Denmark Road offices.

In addition to the existing local list and following a call for nominations of buildings or structures which are of local architectural or historic interest across the borough, the Council approved 57 buildings and structures as Additions to the Local List on 9 May 2011.
Local listing helps mark and celebrates a building's special architectural and historic interest, and while no additional planning controls are imposed on locally listed buildings or structures, Council policy encourages their retention. When determining planning applications for locally listed buildings and structures, the Council expects all proposals for alterations and extensions to be sympathetic to the building's architectural character.
The Additions to the local list were assessed against the six criteria for listing a building or structure in this borough, which are if it:
- Is of historical interest by local, economic or social significance, well known historical events, people or designers;
- Is of architectural interest by a locally significant architect or a good example of local construction techniques, materials or design;
- Is of local community interest;
- Is important to the setting of nearby buildings and open spaces;
- Is important in relation to the townscape view;
- Has group value.
Public consultation on the Additions to the Local List took place from 5 January to 16 February 2011 and the Public Consultation leaflet, the Consultation Report and Schedule of Responses can be viewed using the links below.
