North Tyneside has 226 listed buildings of special architectural or historic interest. There are three grades of listing: I, II and II*, with grade I representing the most significant.
To find out if your property is a Listed Building you can search Historic England's National Heritage List for England.
Listed building consent is required for all works of demolition, alteration or extension to a listed building that affect its character as a building of special architectural or historic interest, inside or out. It is a criminal offence not to seek listed building consent when it is required.
If you are thinking of undertaking any development that would affect a listed building, please take a look at our pre-application service.
To make a listed building consent application please visit the Planning Portal.
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 that would affect the building or park.
Please see the documents below for more information about the Local Register and the heritage assets that are included on the Local Register.
Information on these sites, and all heritage assets within North Tyneside and Tyne and Wear, can be found on the Tyne and Wear's Historic Environment Record website.
