2. Local Heritage Assets

Guide for the Listing of Local Heritage Assets 

Our heritage assets, including those of local, national and international value, are an irreplaceable resource that contribute to the quality of life for residents and it is important that they can be enjoyed by current and future generations.

We have recently produced a Guide for the Listing of Local Heritage Assets which is intended to help local communities to identify and assess features of character with a local heritage value. These are known as non-designated heritage assets and may go on a local list for their area.

It is often the things that are not significant on a national scale that make the biggest contribution to the ‘distinctiveness’ of a local area and that is what we hope to capture by supporting the listing of local heritage assets. Establishing a list of local heritage assets can have a positive effect on the planning process and be beneficial for local places and communities.

The Guide for the Listing of Local Heritage Assets can be viewed here.

If you would like any further information on the guide, or advice on submitting comments, please contact the planning policy section on 01395 517483.
