Listed buildings

Our important buildings with special protection

North Lanarkshire has a diverse built heritage including a vast amount of industrial history, which has characterised its towns, villages and countryside.

Conserving North Lanarkshire's built heritage is important to our quality of life and sense of identity. The historic environment requires careful and active management to ensure its survival.

Over 300 buildings in North Lanarkshire have been listed by Scottish Ministers as being Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest. Owners of listed building should be aware they are responsible for the maintenance of their properties.

How can you find out if a property is listed?

Checking Pastmap will advise you of buildings that are listed, it is important to remember the boundary of buildings may also be covered by listing. This will also advise you if the property is located within a Conservation Area or if any Other Heritage issues apply. If you are still unsure, then contact us for more information.

We also provide further information on the purpose of listing, listing categories and extra controls in place within the what does listing mean section, and on what can/will happen if a listed building is not maintained, information on the demolition of listed buildings as well as information on grant assistance within the maintenance and demolition section.

Historic Environment Scotland have produced advice on listed buildings, and this can be found in the following documents:

Listed Building Owners Guide, Looking After our Heritage, Inform Guides and Managing Change in the Historic Environment.

A range of bodies such as Institute of Historic Building Conservation; Scottish Civic TrustSociety for the Protection of Ancient Buildings and Twentieth Century Society can also provide you further guidance on this topic.

Please contact us if you have any questions. For more information, see 'related pages', 'downloads' or 'other useful websites'.
