This has now been included as a new policy in the proposed New Southwark Plan (NSP). The Council are aiming to consult on the preparation of the Local List in the autumn of 2019 in a draft Supplementary Planning Document (SPD). Further information is shown on this webpage below.

Historic England Guidance
Historic England produce guidance on the criteria for nominations to a Local List. They say: “There may be many buildings and sites in a local planning authority’s area that make a positive contribution to its local character and sense of place because of their heritage value. Although such heritage assets may not be nationally designated or even located within the boundaries of a conservation area, they may be offered some level of protection by the local planning authority identifying them on a formally adopted list of local heritage assets.” More from: https://historicengland.org.uk/advice/hpg/has/locallylistedhas
