Requests for buildings to be considered for ‘listing’ under the terms of the Planning Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas Act 1990 are received by Historic England. Historic England assesses such requests before providing its recommendations to the Secretary of State. We understand that Historic England has received such a request in relation to the former covered market in Woolwich, and that it hopes to submit its recommendation shortly. Once this has been received, the building’s claims to special architectural or historic interest will be considered in line with the Secretary of State’s Principles of Selection for Listed Buildings. Most listing cases are determined within 10 working days, complex or high profile cases within eight weeks.
