List Entry Number: 1455473
Historic England has recently considered adding the above memorial to the List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest.
The Parish Council was asked to comment on this possible listing and Historic England have taken into account all the representations made, and completed their assessment of the memorial. Having considered their recommendation, the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport has decided to add Fornham All Saints War Memorial to the List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest. The memorial is now listed at Grade II.
Please follow the link below to download a copy of their advice report, which gives the principal reasons for this decision. The List entry for this building, together with a map, has now been published on the National Heritage List for England, and will be available for public access from tomorrow. This List can be accessed through our website.
Listing helps Historic England to mark a building’s significance and celebrate its special architectural and historic interest. It brings specific protection so that its special interest can be properly considered in managing its future. Listing does not mean, however, that no alterations can be made - in fact in the vast majority of cases applications to make changes to a listed building are approved. Further information about listed buildings can be found on the ‘Your Home’ pages of our website.
The local planning authority will now be preparing the statutory notices required under the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest.
Please be aware that the listing of the memorial took effect on the day that the List entry was published on the National Heritage List for England.
