Nominations for the List will continue to be accepted by the York Open Planning Forum, strictly on the understanding that they are provisional until the draft List is formally adopted by the Council and that they will have to be assessed against a set of Criteria yet to be agreed.

Download a Nomination Form in pdf format - you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader (free download).

It is important this form is used to put forward a building, structure or place because it asks for the information needed to include an item on the List - about why the building or structure or place is important, where it is, how old it is, and so on. A contact for the person putting the suggestion forward is requested because sometimes it is necessary to check on details of the information.

YOPF invites support for the Local List as nominations will only have validity if they are supported by the local community. Please send your nominations to the address on the Contact Us page
