Birmingham City Council

What is a Locally Listed Building?



A Locally Listed Building is a building, structure or feature which, whilst not listed by the Secretary of State, we feel is an important part of Birmingham's heritage due to its architectural, historic or archaeological significance.

The grading system for Locally Listed Buildings is as follows:-

Grade A (107 buildings)

These are buildings which are of statutory list quality, although not currently nationally listed. We will seek national listing or serve a Building Preservation Notice if it is imminently threatened.

Grade B (243 buildings)

Grade B buildings, structures or features are important in the city wide architectural context or the local street scene, and warrant positive efforts to ensure their retention.

Grade C (91 buildings)

These are of significance in the local historical/vernacular context, including industrial archaeological features, and are therefore worthy of retention.

Locally Listed
Buildings in Birmingham

There are currently 441 locally listed buildings, structures and features in the city.

As with Statutorily Listed Buildings, any works carried out should preserve or enhance the building and any features of architectural or historic interest retained and appropriate materials used.

Inclusion in the Local List does not give the building any statutory protection but we has additional policies in the Birmingham Plan to help guide development.
