Buildings at Risk Catalogue 2017-2018: call for new entries
SAVE is looking for Grade II listed and unlisted historic buildings which are at risk, vacant and in need of a new use and/or new users. The buildings do not have to be for sale to be featured. We are also interested to hear about Grade I and II* listed buildings which are at risk, vacant and being marketed for sale, but we aim not to duplicate Historic England's register so we usually only include buildings in these categories which are for sale and in particular need of publicity.
If you have any potential new entries, please send information and a photo to Liz Fuller, SAVE's Buildings at Risk Officer, by Friday 30 December 2016:
liz.fuller@, 020 7253 3500, savebritainsheritage.org www.savebritainsheritage.org
The following information for new entries is also extremely helpful:
Name, address, location. Is it Grade I, II* or II listed or unlisted and/or locally listed?
Is it in a conservation area?
Condition of the building?
Planning history/current applications?
Is the building vacant?
Context: is the setting rural, industrial, urban etc.?
Owner (we do not publish this information but it is often helpful for us to know).
Suggestion of the best future use - i.e. residential, commercial etc.
A good photograph.
