Assets can demonstrate rarity at a variety of scales.

To consider when you are commenting on RARITY:

  • Is the asset rare locally, regionally or nationally?
  • If the asset is rare, where are there other examples?

An asset included on the local list may be a rare example of its kind nationally, within Cheshire, or just within a particular settlement or other location. Rarity may be deduced by historical or design details, landscape location or function, and should be demonstrated with appropriate research.
