Landmark Status

An asset can have local landmark status if it has strong communal or historical associations, and is a focus point within the local community. It may also be a landmark if it has especially striking aesthetic value and stands out within the local street scene. This may include a building or structure that is characteristic of the heritage of the local district, or an item of street furniture that contributes to the local scene.

Ask yourself……..

  • Is the asset highly visible along the street scene or from further afield?
  • Does it ‘stand out’ from other buildings around it and act as a visual landmark?
  • Does the asset have qualities that are specific to your local area?
  • Is the asset a place that is well known and well used by the local community?
  • Has the asset historically been used by the local community?
