Local 'Icehouse' Could Be Item Of Significance
Hounslow Council seeks nominations for buildings of historical or social importance
The Grove Park Group is compiling a short list for submission of items which could be deemed to be of local significance, including the ice-house (pictured above) which is situated on Grove Park Terrace.
Many structures, mostly buildings, across England are of national historical or architectural importance. These are protected from inappropriate or damaging alteration by being Grade Listed by English Heritage, for example, Grade I or Grade II.
However there are also many other buildings of local historical or social significance but which are not currently suitable for Grade listing status. Hounslow, like all other authorities across England, maintain a register of these called the Local List.
Periodically Hounslow put out a call for new nominations that local people believe warrant being added to the List. The latest of these is active with a closing date of 7th April 2018.
The Grove Park Group is compiling a short list for submission in this latest call and would like to hear from anyone living in the Grove Park Group area which they believe merits inclusion.
For example they are nominating the icehouse in Grove Park Terrace. Let them know what you would like to nominate at email@example.com
