Assets of any age are eligible for inclusion on the Cheshire Local List.

To consider when you are commenting on AGE:

  • Can you find an exact year of construction or creation?
  • When does the asset appear on maps for the first time?
  • Can you date the asset to a decade, or century?
  • Can you ascribe the asset to a broad period?

The majority of locally listed buildings would be expected to date to between 1850 and 1945, but older buildings may be included where their significance does not merit inclusion on the National List. Likewise, any post-1945 buildings can be included where of appropriate significance according to other criteria. 

For other asset types, age should be considered as a criteria alongside any others that demonstrate significance rather than as the sole criteria for designation.
