Building conservation and design

Heritage assets

Wandsworth has a heritage that is rich in architectural and historic character. Many parts of the borough are designated as conservation areas and we have around 500 listed buildings and another 500 buildings on our own Local List.

Wandsworth has six Registered Parks and Gardens of special historic interest and a number of parks and gardens of interest locally.

We have a legal duty to conserve and enhance the significance of our heritage assets under the Planning (Listed Buildings & Conservation Areas) Act 1990 and the National Planning Policy Framework published in 2012.
