Industrial Sites

Scheduling Selection Guide

This selection guide offers a broad overview of the range of industrial sites which may be deemed to have national importance, and outlines the criteria used when assessing such for scheduling. It aims to do two things: to set these within their historical context, and to give an introduction to the designation approaches employed.

Only the principal industries are treated, although the approaches and criteria outlined are generally applicable. Reference should also be made to the separate Industrial Buildings listing selection guide. Other related selection guides include Transport listing and scheduling, Maritime and Naval listing and scheduling, and Military listing and scheduling Pre-1500 and Post-1500 selection guides.
