Landmark Status

An asset that positively contributes to its setting due to its visual prominence or striking aesthetic value within the historic environment is said to be of Landmark Value. This value could be the intended result of development within the historic environment by man, or the unintended consequence of nature.

Guidance and Support for Members of the Public

The following points should be considered when assessing a site for Landmark Status or Value:

  • Does the asset have a strong, positive visual presence within the area?
  • Are there notable views of the site, either from far away, or up close?
  • Are notable views of the site intended, or unintended?
