A VICTORIAN pillar box and remnants of old walls in Acton are some of the new additions to Ealing Council’s list of heritage assets, updated for the first time in 13 years.

The new list contains more than 1,000 locally-listed buildings, structures and monuments of architectural or historical importance, and is in addition to the borough’s 300 statutory listed heritage assets and 29 conservation areas.

The buildings were assessed in accordance with English Heritage guidelines, based on their age and rarity, aesthetic merits and local interest to Ealing.

The borough assessed 1,500 buildings and structures, 300 of which were suggested by groups, individuals and council officers, during a three-month consultation last summer.

Many items have also been retained from the former list, including Hanger Lane Station, Old Southall Town Hall and a red telephone box in Northolt Village from 1935.

Heritage assets recognised by the council merit consideration in planning matters.

Cllr Julian Bell, council leader, said: “Ealing has a wealth of history and is home to some beautiful old buildings, from the 13th century to the present day.”

The Local Heritage Register will be updated annually with applications accepted each year.
