wcgs_logoLocal List

A local list is a list of buildings or sites which are recognized for their contribution to the local character and distinctiveness. Hounslow Council engaged in a process of updating the borough’s local list in 2018 and invited residents to nominate buildings and other structures that they considered merited addition to the list. The Society submitted a considerable number of nominations (see below). Consultation on a “short list” was carried out early in 2019. We were pleased that most of our nominations had made it to the list of proposed additions. We suggested several amendments to better describe entries and requested reconsideration of the non-inclusion of some of our nominations such as Syon House. The updated and significantly expanded Local List was published in 2019; there are now 116 Locally Listed buildings or structures in Chiswick.

Our Nominations

A group of members of the Society came together in 2018 as a “heritage team” and worked on nominations for buildings both within West Chiswick and Gunnersbury and within the wider Chiswick area. We initially submitted 20 nominations for West Chiswick and Gunnersbury and 8 for Central Chiswick and we endorsed 12 nominations submitted by others. We added a few more in our 2019 response.
