The South Yorkshire Local Heritage List relies on community input to identify buildings, sites and places that could be included on the list.
Before the nomination process can begin, a heritage asset must first be identified as a potential candidate. Use the Map to see what assets are already nationally or locally designated and then have a look at the Assessment Criteria to find out about eligibility. If a candidate isn't already designated then you can nominate it for the Local Heritage List.
Potential candidates can be identified in all sorts of ways - through existing personal knowledge of a particular place, as part of a survey or research project with a local group, or by visiting and taking some photos of a historic place you like, along with some research into its history. Many local heritage and special interest groups, such as the Civic Trusts/Societies, are involved with the Local Heritage List project, so you may want to join up with a nearby group. Or contact us for advice on identifying candidates.
Information on how to join training events and other useful tips will also be available on our project Blog.
