A Locally Listed Heritage Asset is a building, park or garden considered to be of special interest because of its historic, architectural, design or townscape value. This is not the same as a Listed Building which is designated at national level by Historic England.
Stroud Town Council has designated these buildings in collaboration with Stroud District Council.
Stroud Town’s first Local List of Heritage Assets was adopted in 2017. The area that was chosen for this first list was the Neighbourhood Development Plan Area, essentially the Town Centre, with over 92 nationally listed buildings.
There are a lot of steps to a Local Heritage Asset List (Local List). Firstly to work out the method and then a nomination form. Then we met with volunteers and walked the streets of Stroud Town Centre looking and enjoying so many of the details on buildings around the town. 100 buildings were nominated!
We got together a group of local building experts including two people from SDC Conservation Planning and between us we chose the 45 ‘best’. These have been photographed, written up in detail and letters are going to owners to check in a public consultation that there is agreement that these buildings can be locally listed.
It has taken quite a lot of time but we hope that once fully agreed all those locally listed can be seen on the Stroud Town Council website 9add this link later). Anyone will then be able to nominate a building that they like for a specific reason and there will be an annual assessment of those buildings nominated and they will be added to the list.
The full list will be on the STC website soon but in the meantime you can look through the lovely photos of the nominated buildings here. All photographs except the one of the Imperial Hotel have been taken by Steve Hurrell and are his copyright.
