Conserving The Local Heritage of Lytham St Annes
Our town has numerous buildings, features and open spaces which are not important enough to be designated nationally as “Listings” but are still important to us.
The Local List Project is helping to celebrate and conserve this local heritage of Lytham St Annes. It provides recognition and protection for the things which we, the community, like and value at a local level.
The project is following the national guidelines of Historic England and Civic Voice. Our local assets are being identified and judged against criteria such as age, rarity, historical association, landmark status.
How Are We Helping?
The Civic Voice website reads:
“Following a vote at the Civic Voice convention in 2012, this is now a national campaign championed by Civic Voice with the endorsement of English Heritage. Civic societies up and down the country are rising to the challenge of preparing a ‘Local List’
Our Society is helping Fylde Borough Council by part-funding an experienced local list officer for a while. Work began early in 2016 and is focusing on Fairhaven, Ansdell, St Annes and Lytham. Our members are helping with local knowledge.
