Locally Listed Buildings

About Locally Listed Buildings

Southend has a wide range of historic buildings and structures. Those which are nationally important are included in the Government's statutory list of "buildings of special architectural or historic interest". These "Listed Buildings" are given legal protection. But we also have other historic buildings which are locally important. These are included in our non-statutory Local List.

The purpose of the Local List is to identify buildings, structures and monuments of local architectural or historic importance and to take action as far as possible to preserve them. About 150 are on the Local List ranging from houses, shops and schools to transport structures and townscape features such as post boxes and shelters.

For further information please see our Detailed List of Locally Listed Buildings.
