Lower Beeding War Memorial granted Listed Building Status

Published: 26 April 2019

Lower Beeding War Memorial, Church of Holy Trinity churchyard, – granted Listed Building Status


The above war memorial to be added to the List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest.


We have completed our assessment of the war memorial. I am writing to inform you that having considered our recommendation, the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport has decided to add Lower Beeding War Memorial to the List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest. The war memorial is now listed at Grade II.




Listing helps us to mark a building or structure’s significance and celebrate its special architectural and historic interest. It brings specific protection so that its special interest can be properly considered in managing its future. Further information about listed buildings and the conservation of war memorials can be found on our website.


The local planning authority will now be preparing the statutory notices required under the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest.


Please be aware that the listing of the war memorial took effect on the day that the List entry was published on the National Heritage List for England.


As of 25 June 2013, the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Act (ERRA) has enabled a number of heritage reforms, including an amendment to the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 that provides two potential ways to be more precise about what is listed. Whether or not the new provisions have been invoked with regard to this building/structure is explained in the Advice Report. A List entry that makes use of these provisions will clarify what attached and curtilage structures are excluded from the listing and/or which interior features definitively lack special interest; however, owners and managers should be aware that other planning and development management constraints might apply to these structures, and should clarify these with the Local Planning Authority.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of any further assistance. More information can also be found on our website at https://historicengland.org.uk.
