The term 'listed building' is to be scrapped under the new Heritage Bill. Daily Telegraph

The changes are proposed in the draft Heritage Bill which will also enable landscapes, such as Capability Brown parkland or farmed landscapes in national parks, to be registered as 'heritage assets'.

The term “listed” is to be abolished to simplify a system that currently has listed buildings and scheduled ancient monuments.

The new system will have the same Grade I, Grade II* and Grade II designations, but buildings and monuments alike will be called registered heritage assets.
