Heritage at Risk

The latest survey on the condition of Gloucester's 'built heritage' is now available on the City Council's website.

There are more than 650 individually listed buildings and monuments and the survey – carried out as part of a pilot project with English Heritage – records the physical condition of each one.

The project was aimed at deciding whether Grade II listed buildings should be included on English Heritage 'Risk Register.' They are already included on Gloucester's Buildings at Risk Register

The results of the survey showed when it was first carried out in the city in 2001 there were 50 properties identified as being at risk. Since then a total of 30 buildings have been removed due to their futures having been secured through reuse. 

Heritage Officers have identified a further 26 buildings which have been added to the"At Risk" list and 17 more identified as being vulnerable.

Council staff work with building owners to encourage them to get repairs and improvements carried out and with letting agents to find viable uses for each of the properties.
