Lambeth has a rich heritage of buildings and structures which contribute to the character and interest of our streets and neighbourhoods. Some 2,500 of these are on the government’s national list of buildings of special architectural or historic interest; the statutory list.
In addition, there are many buildings in Lambeth which are of local architectural or historic interest. The Lambeth ‘local list’ was established in March 2010 in order to give recognition to these buildings and structures. The objective of the local list is to identify and designate buildings and structures of local interest so that we can consider their significance when determining any planning proposals affecting them.
Whilst local listing is a planning designation it does NOT impose any additional planning controls; the normal planning regulations will apply. When considering any planning applications the Council will seek to protect locally listed buildings from inappropriate alteration or demolition; this is set out in Policy 46 of Lambeth’s Unitary Development Plan (UDP). Property owners do NOT need to apply for listed building consent to undertake works to a locally listed building.
The following local buildings have been added to the local list:
