Bristol City Council has launched a new type of app. The Heritage Eye app is free and now available on Android and IoS.
The City Design Group have published the first City Council smartphone app. Heritage Eye was funded by English Heritage and developed by Calvium software developers in partnership with City Design Group and Corporate Geographic Information Services (GIS).
The app enables members of the public to undertake their own Listed Building survey and assess whether the structure is suffering from neglect or abuse. A completed survey can then be submitted to Know Your Place for validation by Conservation Officers.
The app will contribute to the maintenance of Bristol’s buildings at risk register and help officers manage the heritage of the city.
A user guide has been produced as a downloadable pdf document.
Further information about the Listed Buildings and the buildings at risk register can be found here.
