Group Value

Group value can be an additional criteria for individual assets that merit designation, or for groups of assets that do not merit designation individually.

Assets may together demonstrate clear visual design continuity, or they may have a historic or other relationship, such as being key components of a significant view.

Within the local list, group value may also recognise the contribution of an asset to the setting of an asset on the National List, or former ancillary buildings that do not meet the definition of being curtilage listed.

To consider when you are commenting on MAKING HISTORY:

  • Do sensory experiences associated with an asset play a strong part in developing community identity or are they a key part of how children experience the built environment?
