Heritage at Risk

There is a national building at Risk Register which is managed by Historic England. The National register includes Buildings of Grade I, II*, II Listed places of worship across England and Grade II Listed buildings in London.

We also hold an independent Risk register which covers buildings of GI , GII* and Grade II for Rossendale which can be found here.

Where a listed building is being neglected and put at risk, we can serve a notice requiring the owner to undertake any necessary works. In default we can arrange for the work to be undertaken at the expense of the owner. In exceptional circumstances we can also apply for the compulsory acquisition of the building at minimal compensation.
