The South Yorkshire Local Heritage List

The Local Heritage List is a new government funded project aimed at identifying and assessing a range of heritage sites, including historic buildings, archaeological sites, historic parks and gardens, and historic landscapes, for inclusion into the local authorities’ list for South Yorkshire. Once included on the list, these places can be protected within the planning system and recognised across the county as important and valued historic places.

The main feature of the Local Heritage List Project is that nominations for inclusion onto the list are open to all members of the public, regardless of age, abilities or background, whether they are individuals or part of a group. This allows the list to be a representation of local residents views of their area and what makes it special. The South Yorkshire Archaeology Service know that there are many communities and groups in South Yorkshire that have either developed here over the past century or not previously been involved with the heritage of their area, but that have strong connections to local buildings or sites and they are keen that this part of their history is also reflected in the local list.

The Service would like to involve all local communities and special interest groups in the project as much as possible, in both submitting candidates for the list and commenting on other nominations. This will all be done through our South Yorkshire Local Heritage List website; https://local-heritage-list.org.uk/south-yorkshire. This will be a one stop shop for anyone wanting to know about or get involved with local listing in South Yorkshire. It will hold the list itself, information about local heritage listing, resources and nomination form for those wanting to nominate candidates and information for those on the assessment panel who will be judging the nominations. There is also a blog and forum for users to share information, ask questions or find out about related events.

Sarah Cattell, the Archaeological Records Officer, South Yorkshire Archaeology Service is happy to come and speak to any interested groups about the project, so please let he know if you know of any groups who might be interested in taking part in the project.  

In the meantime, please feel free to get in touch with Sarah if you have any queries about the project. Sarah's email address is: Sarah.Cattell@sheffield.gov.uk
