Colchester residents are invited to suggest buildings or assets to be featured on the town’s Local List of protected heritage structures.

Colchester Borough Council is looking for additions to its protected list of heritage buildings.

Residents are invited to submit proposals for buildings or assets they consider to be historically or architecturally important at a local level.

They should be heritage structures valued by the local community, which make a significant contribution to the character and setting of Colchester and the surrounding villages.

The local community may also nominate items to be removed from the list.

The Colchester Local List currently helps to protect approximately 765 buildings and assets, and can include individual buildings, whole streetscapes or individual features on buildings such as railings, lamp posts or even post boxes.

Residents should submit their proposals to the Planning Policy team at the Council, along with any supporting information by Wednesday February 28.
