Protected Buildings Review
In 2012 the Planning Division began carrying out a review of the list of protected buildings. The purpose of the review is to re-examine existing protected buildings and make sure they have been designated appropriately and also to consider other buildings that may be worthy of listing.

Following last summer's public questionnaire the Planning Division has published the results on the public's views on the importance of the protection of the island's historic environment, what aspects you value about protected buildings, what factors need to be taken into account when deciding whether to list a building and how high the bar should be set. It also raised the question of alternative forms of protection to listing. You can view the results here Public Consultation Results [116kb] .
This year we will be continuing to visit and review protected buildings and we will be drafting criteria for listing. Around 150 protected buildings were visited in 2012. The draft criteria will be informed by last year's public consultation. We will also be consulting the community in 2013/2014 on the draft criteria for listing once these have been drafted.
