The process of listing some of Sheffield, and South Yorkshire’s, heritage assets is set to continue after funding was secured to continue the project.

The South Yorkshire Local Heritage List allows the local significance of a building, place, or site to be taken into account in planning decisions that affect it or it’s setting.

The extension of the project will allow even more local assets to be added to the list alongside those that have already been deemed important to their local area.

Since it was first approved by Sheffield City Council in March 2022 a whole range of assets have been added to the list across Sheffield alone.

The diverse list includes buildings such as Darnall Picture Palace, Cavendish Buildings in West Street, and Hobson Memorial Pavilion.

The 4 South Yorkshire Authorities have agreed to extend the funding for the list with representatives from the South Yorkshire Archaeology Service continuing to run the project.

As part of the extension of the project, nominations for potential heritage assets that could be added to the list will be accepted and those can be made at:

Cllr Ben Miskell, Chair of the Transport, Regeneration and Climate Committee at Sheffield City Council said: “Since it was launched, the Local Heritage List has proved incredibly popular, with a wide range of assets being added to the list so far and highlights the passion people and communities have for the assets that mean most to them and their city, as well as the wider region.

“It is fantastic that we have secured funding to continue the project which will ensure that more fantastic buildings, parks, areas and places will be given the significance they deserve.”
