Guernsey to review its list of protected buildings

Guernsey residents are being offered the chance to determine which of the island's buildings should be protected.

The Environment Department's planning division is carrying out a review following public criticism.

Faith Rose, the director of planning policy, admitted there had been concern that "there are buildings on it that aren't worth listing".

However, she added "there are also buildings that aren't on it that should be".

Ms Rose said: "We've got so far with looking at these buildings but now we want a feel from the public."

More than 1,500 buildings are currently classified as protected.

A questionnaire has been made available on the department's website.
