The new Suffolk Buildings at Risk register was officially launched this week.

Suffolk CC has teamed up with district and borough councils and reviewed the current list. Suffolk has nearly 12,500 listed buildings, one of the highest totals for any county council.

All properties on the register are listed as being of special architectural or historic interest. They have been assessed as 'at risk' using the guidelines devised by English Heritage.

Eddy Alcock, portfolio holder for environment, waste and economic development said: 'Listed buildings are irreplaceable, so we have to be careful in the way they are maintained. Many of the buildings on the register could be repaired and put to good use. One of the aims of the register if to encourage owners to carry out essential repairs or sell their property at a reasonable price.'

Copies of the Buildings at Risk register, which includes a photograph of each property along with other details can be seen at any district or county planning office, libraries and record offices across Suffolk. Copies can also be purchased from the Environment and Transport department, Endeavour House, Russell Road, Ipswich at the price of£10.

Notes

1. The local authorities are: Babergh DC, Forest Heath DC, Ipswich BC, Mid Suffolk DC, St Edmundsbury BC, Suffolk Coastal DC and Waveney DC.

2. Owners of buildings on the register are encouraged to contact their district council conservation officer for further advice.
