Listed Buildings

This page provides a consolidated list of Listed buildings and other protected structures. It includes those structures noted in the Cheshire East Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) which covers all structures that should be considered valuable to the local environment but do not meet the criteria for formal Listing. These are highlighted in the table below by the SPD acronym. All items are also noted on their relevant street pages, together with buildings protected by Conservation Areas and Article 4 Directives. The street names below are linked to their relevant street page. Most links in the listed items are to the Historic England web site. ‘II’ indicates Grade II listing. Almost every piece of stonework on the Macclesfield canal is listed and they are shown separately at the bottom of the page. The monochrome pictures are historic and come from the Civic Society archive collection. The colour pictures are modern, taken by the webmasters and others. Many of the listed structures feature in other pages on this site and a link is provided in ‘(Local history page)’ at the end of the entries.

Other forms of protection

‘Listing’ is the process used by Historic England to establish protection over the most valuable examples of our built heritage. Strict rules apply to such buildings with respect to alteration, additions and the need to apply for listed building consent as well as the usual planning permission. Listing also protects the interior of the buildings where relevant.

A lesser level of protection is provided by Conservation Area designation. Again stricter planning controls exist to maintain the look and feel of a heritage area. Specific buildings within a Conservation Area may be issued with an Article 4 Directive to provide a more specific protection to the front, sides, and roof of the building. Article 4 Directives apply only to the outside of the building. They can be used to regulate styles and materials in windows and doors, and the colours used. External finishes are also controlled. Conservation Areas in Bollington and Kerridge are discussed in full on their own pages, and the relevant properties are noted on the street pages.

Cheshire East Council planners also maintain a list of buildings over which special care should be exercised when they become the subject of a planning application.
