Work has been progressing on the review of the Warminster Neighbourhood Plan. Over the past couple of months, the Topic Groups, which are made up of Councillors and volunteers from the local community, have been reviewing and updating the objectives from the current Neighbourhood Plan. Work has also started on updating the evidence base to underpin the updated associated policies. The Topic Groups will be gathering evidence in relation to their respective areas of interest through liaising with the local community.
The ‘Environment, Heritage and Design’ Topic Group has been tasked with producing a local heritage assets list.
Many heritage assets are already protected, for example by their listed building status. The local heritage list is for those that don’t have such safeguards. This list gives the local community and the Town Council the chance to recognise heritage assets that are of local importance to the history of Warminster, and that these need to be regarded with care in planning decisions.
Warminster is home to many great heritage buildings and features. Many of these are listed buildings, but some have not been recognised on the national list. Local heritage assets can include buildings, gardens or architectural features considered to be of special interest because of their historic, architectural, design or townscape value.
To help compile the local heritage assets list, we are asking you, the Warminster community, to give us your suggestions for the assets you think should be included.
For further information and to download the local heritage asset nomination form, take a look at our Locally Valued Heritage Assets page and let us know your suggestions. Please return your nomination form by 23 November 2022.
