Criterion Description

Age: The age of an asset may be important criterion, and the age range can be adjusted to take into account distinctive local characteristics of building traditions.

Rarity: Appropriate for all assets, as judged against local characteristics

Aesthetic Interest: The intrinsic value of an asset relating to local styles materials or any other distinctive local characteristics

Group Value: Groupings of assets with clear visual design or historic relationship

Archeological Interest: The local heritage asset may provide evidence about past human activity in the locality, which may be archeological - that is in the form of buried remains - but may also be revealed in the structure of buildings or in a manmade landscape. Heritage assets with archeological interests are the primary source of evidence about the substance and evolution of places, and of the people and cultures that made them.

Archival Interest: The significance of a local heritage asset of any kind may be enhanced by a significant contemporary or historic written record.

Historical Association: The significance of a local heritage asset of any kind may be enhanced by a significant historical association of local or national note, including links to important local figures.

Designated Landscape: Interest The interest attached to locally important designated landscapes, parks and garden which may relate to their design or social history. This may complement a local green space designation, which provides special protection against development for green areas of particular importance to local communities for their current use.

Landmark Status: An asset with strong communal or historical associations, or because it has especially striking aesthetic value, may be singled out as a landmark within the local scene.

Social and Communal Value: Relating to places perceived as a source as local identity, distinctiveness, social interaction and coherence sometimes residing in intangible aspects of heritage, contributing to the 'collective memory' of place.
