Landmark Status

This is an asset which has such strong visual, historic or communal value* that it is either a visual marker, for example, the daymark on Stepper Point; means something to the local community, for example, a prominent chimney which is visible from far away and serves as a reminder of the importance of mining in the area; or is an architectural landmark; for example, a large clock tower in a market square.

*Communal value derives from the meanings of a place for the people who relate to it, or for whom it figures in their collective experience or memory. Communal values are closely bound up with historical (particularly associative) and aesthetic values. It can be Commemorative and Symbolic, Social or Spiritual.
