The dataset contains polygons for statutory listed buildings within the London Borough of Barnet. These are buildings, objects or structures considered to be of special architectural or historic interest, which need to be preserved for future generations. The list is compiled by the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport following advice from Historic England. Statutory listed buildings are protected by legislation in the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990.

The National Heritage List for England (NHLE) is the official register for nationally protexted historic buildings and sites in England however not all data has been captured as polygons. For statutory listed buildings polygons are usually only available in the NHLE for entries listed or substantially amended since 04th April 2011. To support local planning requirements and national iniatives such as the Open Digital Planning project, the Local Planning Authority (LPA) has digitised polygons for records within it's boundary. This dataset may be withdrawn in the event that NHLE develops to encompass all local requirements.
