Screening for Potential Listing

Screening for Potential Listing provides a way to reduce uncertainty early on in the development process when you need to find out whether a substantial area of land may contain buildings or structures that could merit our consideration for listing.

We will carry out a survey and provide a report to give our assessment of the likelihood of any above-ground heritage assets meriting further consideration for listing.

The report will also indicate heritage assets which may merit local designation; however decision-making on these is for the Local Planning Authority to determine.

This will be particularly helpful where blocks of land are being assembled for development or for disposal with a view to redevelopment, or where areas are under consideration for regeneration.

Please note: This service will not identify below-ground archaeological potential, which will need to be addressed separately with the Local Planning Authority.

Screening for Potential Listing is only available as a paid-for service. 

A full description of Screening for Potential Listing can be seen in the EAS Service Descriptions document below alongside the information we will require to assess your request.
