In addition to the Statutory List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest', Dudley Council itself compiles a “Local List” of buildings of historic or architectural significance that are considered to make a particular contribution to Local Distinctiveness.

The bulk of the Borough’ s historic buildings, including industrial archaeological remains, were built after 1840 and so will often not meet the national criteria necessary for inclusion on the statutory lists. This does not, however, diminish their importance in terms of the local historic character of the many different townships which make up Dudley Borough. The “Local List” which stands at over 400 items has, therefore, been compiled to provide a measure of protection to the most important of these historic buildings.

The Local List for Dudley Borough was approved for adoption by Dudley Council's Development Control Committee on 12th December 1996.

Although controls are not as strict as those related to the statutory list the Council is committed to resisting proposals to demolish or adversely alter Locally Listed Buildings. This policy is set out in the Unitary Development Plan - Policy HE5.

Dudley Council is currently undertaking a process to review the Local List to ensure that Dudley Council can respond positively to regeneration opportunities whilst respecting local historic assets of value and where feasible bringing them into beneficial use.

As a first step towards updating the 1996 Local List, Dudley Council have proposed updated local listing assessment criteria. These criteria were the subject of a public consultation exercise which ran from 15th May to 26th June 2015.

Representations received are currently being considered and will inform the final version of updated local assessment. Once approved by Dudley Council, these updated assessment criteria will be used to assess the current locally listed buildings and structures in terms of their retention or removal from Dudley Council’s Local List.
