Each entry takes the following format::

i) Town / County as applicable.

ii) Name and address of building.

iii) The grade of listing is given: I, II* or II.

iv) The month in which the AMS was informed of the application.

v) The date of the building if known.

Then the code indicates:

C - Application submitted by Council

CC -Application submitted by County Council

F -Application wholly or partly prompted by fire damage.

R - Building threatened by a road scheme

Rp -Proposal for "replica" Facade after development.

Finally the result of the application, if yet determined, is given.
