Nominate your favourite buildings and sites for our ‘Local List’

Nominate your favourite buildings and sites for our ‘Local List’. Closing date: June 15th 2022.

Communities across Gateshead, Newcastle and South Tyneside are invited to nominate locally important sites for a new Local Heritage List. The three councils are working together to update their Local Lists of buildings, structures and places that are recognised as being important heritage assets, even if they don’t meet the criteria for national listing by Historic England. Assets included in a Local List are given special consideration in the planning process.
