The way in which historic buildings and places in Jersey are designated changed in January 2011. The new system of designation is much simpler, clearer and fairer.
Under the new heritage protection system the names given to protected historic buildings and places has changed as follows:

- Important information
This database is for information only and its accuracy is not guaranteed. Names of properties change over time and without notice and the information given usually relates only to the name in use when the building was protected. It does not detail the extent of protection so care is required in respect of buildings within the grounds or former grounds of protected buildings and those which are part of a group or are converted farm buildings. A land search is the normal way to check definitively whether or not a building is protected, and even these sometimes need to be clarified. Please remember that each protected building or structure is someone’s property and may be their home so please respect their ownership and privacy. The publication of this information does not infer any rights in respect of any property. If you wish to carry out works to a property that is protected you may need to seek planning permission for the work.
