North Somerset heritage sites to be conserved - public to choose

The council is launching a six-week consultation period on the draft selection criteria of a Local List of key historic sites that should be conserved, link to further information. The consultation period will run until Friday 9 April and includes buildings, structures, parks, gardens and archaeological sites.

As part of Weston’s Heritage Action Zone work, Historic England are supporting the development of a Local Listing programme, which will include an agreed directory of heritage assets that the general public feel should be conserved.
