Listed Buildings and Local Register

Listed Buildings

There are over 200 listed buildings of special architectural and historic interest which vary considerably in type and character. There are three 'Grades' of listing, I, II and II*, with Grade I representing the most significant.

Listed building consent is required if you want to demolish a listed building or any part of it, or alter it in any way which would affect its character, inside or out (you can apply for listed building consent by using the Application for Listed Building Consent form (see below).

Repairs which match exactly may not need consent, however you should contact the planning department who will advise you on this as the effect of any repairs is not always straight forward.

Information on these sites, and all heritage sites within North Tyneside and Tyne and Wear, can be found on the Tyne and Wear's Historic Environment Record website.

Local Register

North Tyneside Council has put together a Register of buildings and parks that are of special local architectural and historic interest. Unlike Nationally Listed Buildings or Registered Parks and Gardens, Local Register status does not put any extra planning constraints on a property; rather it would be a material consideration if a development was proposed (i.e. the historical and architectural quality of the building would be taken into consideration when the planning officer was making their recommendation).

In addition, it is hoped that the Local Register will raise the profile of and give recognition to the buildings, parks, etc. that are of special importance to our Borough.

Information on these sites, and all heritage sites within North Tyneside and Tyne and Wear, can be found on the Tyne and Wear's Historic Environment Record website.

World Heritage Sites

Hadrians Wall stretches 73 miles from Wallsend on River Tyne to the Solway Firth. Hadrian's Wall World Heritage Site was extended and renamed in 2015 to the "Frontiers of the Roman Empire".

In 2000, the Segedunum Roman Fort, Bath House and Museum in Wallsend opened to the public. The development, which reuses part of a shipyard on the Tyne River, is operated by the Tyne and Wear Museums and includes a working reconstruction of a Roman bathhouse as well as a viewing tower approximately 34 meters (116 feet) in height.
