Within Bath and North East Somerset (B&NES) there are a wide range of buildings, structures and landscape features that provide a valuable contribution to the local character and distinctiveness of the area. These features are termed “non-designated heritage assets” or “locally listed heritage assets”.
B&NES has prepared this draft Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) in relation to the identification, recording and management of locally listed heritage assets within the Council’s area. The document is principally about the process involved in selecting any buildings/ structures or landscape features that may be of local value. It provides guidance on how to go about nominating local heritage assets, how the selection of them will be undertaken and how they will be recorded. The document also aims to raise the profile and encourage recognition of the contribution that local heritage assets make to the special character of B&NES.
