In North Dorset there are over 2500 entries in the list of buildings of special architectural or historic importance.

The conservation team carries out the council's statutory responsibilities in safeguarding and maintaining the character of the district's listed buildings.

You can search for details of listed buildings using the  National Heritage List for England or by contacting the conservation team directly.

Advice is also given on the sensitive adaptation of redundant buildings that ensures their long-term conservation. We have compiled a buildings at risk register of listed buildings deemed to be at risk due to a lack of maintenance or neglect.

Buildings at Risk Register - part one - A-R

Buildings at Risk Register - part two - S-Z

The main aim of the conservation team is to safeguard the special architectural and historic interest of heritage assets for the future. In doing so the team advise customers how modifications can be carried out to alter buildings and structures sympathetically using traditional or contemporary materials or designs where possible.
