2. Listed buildings in Exeter

Listed buildings are designated by Historic England using nationally set criteria. Please always check Historic England for the most up to date national list of listed buildings and other nationally designated heritage assets.


There are numerous other non-designated heritage assets that are not statutorily protected but do comprise an integral part of the city’s environment and distinctive character. These are identified locally and include buried remains, buildings, monuments, specific sites, places, areas or landscapes identified as having a degree of heritage significance meriting consideration in planning decisions. These are identified in Exeter’s List of Locally Important Heritage Assets, Conservation Area Appraisals and Management Plans, and the Exeter City Historic Environment Record (HER).


A summary of listed and locally listed buildings, incorporating amendments up to July 2012, is available on our Local List November 2012.
