The Falkland Islands contain many historic buildings, of which over 50 are currently 'listed' by the Falkland Islands Government as being of 'special architectural or historic interest'. These buildings cover a wide range of styles, construction methods and historic significance, some with origins dating back to the 18th Century. They include not just dwellings but also stone corrals, water pumps, sheep dips and other structures.

The protection and preservation of such buildings is very important to our local heritage. Good maintenance, repairs and appropriate alterations can ensure they will be enjoyed by future generations. To facilitate work relating to the preservation of buildings and other structures of historic or architectural interest the Environmental Planning Department administer the Government grant funding to promote such preservation.
