How to propose a building
for local listing
Wolverhampton contains many buildings that do not meet the national criteria
for inclusion in the statutory list, and are still worthy of protection and
conservation in their own right. Such a building may be of architectural
importance, a rare example of a specific type of building, associated with
the historical development of its area or associated with a particular
historical event or person.
Local listing does not only apply to buildings, but can also apply to
parks, gardens, burial grounds or archaeological sites.
If you want to make a suggestion for an addition to the local list, all
that you have to do is to obtain and complete, a Wolverhampton Local List
Proposal Form, from the Regeneration and Transportation Department on the
second floor of the Civic Centre.
If you do fill-in a form, be sure to
include some historical information along with suitable references.
