Local Heritage Assets Survey

What buildings or features do YOU think are an important part of Westbury’s local heritage?

The Westbury Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group are inviting nominations for Non-designated Local Heritage Assets.

Local Heritage Assets are considered to be of special interest because of their heritage interest at a local level. They are not ‘designated’ or listed and do not have the same status as Listed Buildings which are designated for their heritage value at a national level by Historic England.

But we can identify them in a policy in the Neighbourhood Plan so that when planning permission is required the ‘special interest’ of a Local Heritage Asset is taken into account by planning officers.
