Conservation areas & listed buildings

The historical environment provides important evidence about the past. These kind of buildings are a finite resource and in some cases are highly fragile and vulnerable to damage and destruction.

The conservation of the historic environment is addressed in the Core Strategy and ‘Saved’ Local Plans. The Core Strategy contains an overarching policy relating to the preservation and enhancement of natural and built environment (Core Policy 9), and Saved Local Plan Policy EN17 relates to Locally Listed Buildings.

Listed buildings

You can find out details of listed buildings in Slough and across England from the National Heritage List for Buildings section on the Heritage Gateway website.
You can access the list here:

The National Heritage List for England gives information on all national designated assets. Each entry on the list has been given a unique reference number (list entry number). The entry will state any previous reference numbers associated with the heritage asset (or the Unique Identification Number - UID). You can still use the previous reference number to search the list.
The Local Plan for Slough contains a list of Listed Buildings in Slough in Appendix 5, although two more monuments were added to this list in 2010. You can access the Local Plan for Slough here:

Local Plan for Slough contains a list of Listed Buildings in Slough in Appendix 5

To demolish, alter or extend a listed building, you will need to apply for listed building consent from Slough Borough Council. This may include any proposed works to structures in the land surrounding the listed building, such as gates, stables and statues.

For more information on the planning process, please see our information on Listed Building Consent.
