DCMS’ revised ‘Principles of Selection for Listed Buildings’ now out

websiteThe Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) has issued its revised ‘Principles of Selection for Listed Buildings’ with new dates, definitions and more. 

Duncan McCallum, Policy Director at Historic England, writes on his Linkedin page:

Revised Principles of Selection for Listed Buildings from Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) https://lnkd.in/gdYjZWa include new and expanded definitions for architectural and historic interest (para16), reference to the ‘character and appearance of conservation areas’(para 17), shifts the 1840 date to 1850 for age/ rarity and refines the considerations for buildings under 30 years old advising: ‘such buildings are not normally considered to be of special architectural or historic interest because they have yet to stand the test of time. It may nevertheless be appropriate to list some modern buildings despite their relatively recent construction – for example, if they demonstrate outstanding quality (generally interpreted as being equivalent to Grade I or II*)’ (para 19).”
