Locally listed buildings

In Watford, we have 240 locally listed buildings, chosen for their architectural and historical value. These don't meet the requirements for a national listing, so in order to protect these buildings, we have listed them locally.

Have a read of our locally listed buildings guide, in it you will find:

  • the requirements for a local listing
  • which parts of the buildings should be protected
  • implications for developers - is planning permission required?

Buildings of local interest have been identified and listed in the Watford District Plan 2000 and any development adversely affecting these buildings will be resisted.
