The 'draft local list' became official last night and is now 'the local list' after it was adopted by Colchester Borough Council. Buildings on the local list will now be protected through the planning process.

The locally-listed buildings are soon to appear on C-maps which is the system on the Council website where all the planning constraints (conservation areas, listed buildings and the like) are set out. Our own website will be maintained for the foreseeable future. Work continues on it slowly. The latest additions include lists of architects and demolished buildings. Gradually more information will be added to these lists to help reveal the architects who helped shape Victorian and early 20th-century Colchester and to provide records of some of the more interesting buildings that the town has lost.
