Designation Listing Selection Guide

A guide to outline the selection criteria used when designating commerce and exchange buildings.

The categories in this guide broadly cover buildings for the 'face to face' buying and selling of goods or services by providers to the general public: shops and stores, market halls and exchanges; hotels, restaurants, inns and pubs; and banks. Offices and chambers, although less public, are most conveniently covered here. Warehouse are dealt with in the Industrial selection guide.

This is one of a series of guides which set out some of our approaches to designating buildings. Covering twenty broad categories of building types, they including historical overviews and special considerations for listing, plus select bibliographies. They are primarily intended to develop understanding of designated buildings and structures, and to offer insight into designation decision making.
