An asset with strong communal or historical associations or because it has especially striking aesthetic value, may be singled out as a landmark within the local scene. Suitable candidates for inclusion could be pubs, banks, civic, educational, and religious buildings where their design and siting create a distinctive focal point in the landscape or townscape. They would normally be of a markedly different appearance to surrounding buildings.
Suitable assets for inclusion could be:
- Candidates that positively contribute to the street scene, landscape, or locality by providing local distinctiveness and interest
- Candidates associated with distinctive communal, commemorative, symbolic or spiritual significance
- Candidates that relate to places perceived as a source of local identity, social interaction and coherence, valued by the wider community and contributing to collective memory of a place.
