Have you got a favourite building or structure in Limpsfield that is not already listed or protected?
A new project is underway to identify assets across Surrey that are valued by the community and play a key role in reinforcing a sense of local character and distinctiveness.
Over the next year, Surrey County Council will be producing an updated local heritage asset list for the district.
Limpsfield Parish Council’s Planning Committee will also be reviewing local buildings and structures to identify those we think should be on the list.
Assets on local heritage lists, also known as local listing, are not protected in the same way as listed buildings, but can be afforded protection through the planning system as ‘non-designated heritage assets’.
What can be on the list?
…in fact pretty much anything that has heritage significance, but is not recognised by another planning designation (e.g. listed building or in a conservation area).
They should give an insight into the history of communities and places and provides us with a physical link to our past.

As part of our ongoing Neighbourhood Plan endeavours to create better walking and cycling routes for the area, we have put in a bid for a way-marked family friendly walking route and separate ‘there and back’ cycle route from Limpsfield Chart to Limpsfield Village.
Our Limpsfield Village Conservation Area Assessment & Management Plan initial period of consultation comes to an end this Friday, 27th November. Don’t forget to let us know your thoughts by then…
Over the last few decades as traffic and number of cars has increased dramatically in all cities, towns and villages, parking on or half on pavements has become common practice.
In August this year, The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government launched a consultation period for its White Paper – Planning for the Future, which proposes a fundamental and wide-reaching reform of the current planning process in England.
The Consultation period has now ended and Limpsfield Parish Council has submitted its response to the proposed reforms…
We are very happy to report that following previous communication about the implementation of an Appraisal and Management Plan for the Limpsfield Village Conservation Area, this project is now underway.
