Nominate your favourite community assets

Have you got a favourite building, structure, sculpture, park or garden which is not already listed or protected?

A new project is underway to identify assets across Surrey which are valued by the community, so we need your nominations for buildings or other features you think play a key role in reinforcing a sense of local character and distinctiveness.

Over the next year, Surrey County Council will be working with us to produce an updated local heritage asset list for the district. This list can include any building, monument, site, place, area or landscape which has heritage significance, but is not recognised by another planning designation.

Heritage assets can take many forms and can be almost anything which gives an insight into the history of communities and places and provides us with a physical link to our past.

The nomination process opens on 5 October and closes at 5pm on 16 November.

To find out more, including the criteria being used and how to submit a nomination, please visit Local heritage list project.

Surrey County Council will recommend which nominations it thinks should be added to the local heritage asset list. We will then decide if we’ll add them to the list (known as Buildings of Character), which will give some protection if a planning application is submitted.
