The aim of the Briefings is to share knowledge and stimulate debate.
It asks, therefore, whether national heritage legislation and policy is still the most effective way of protecting valued heritage sites, or whether we should be looking to more local, community-based, policies given the localism agenda of the coalition government Abstract As many in academia now argue, heritage significance is ascribed and not intrinsic to the asset in question.
However, the majority of applications for statutory heritage designation are for everyday heritage assets which have significance to the local community.
When assessed under the current criteria, many of these applications are turned down because the site is not thought to have enough special interest. There are therefore significant tensions between national, expert-assessed significance and locally ascribed social significance. There has been little academic investigation of this particular area of dissonant heritage.
This research, therefore, investigates this tension and considers opportunities to reduce it through the use of local heritage lists and Big Society agenda outcomes such as neighbourhood planning.
It does this through the analysis of applications for statutory designation; collation and analysis of local heritage list data; and evaluation and analysis of data in relation to Assets of Community Value and Neighbourhood Development Plans.
Empirical data for each of these has not previously been analysed or published. In concluding, my thesis argues that a better understanding of the role and legacy of National significance in statutory designation, combined with making the most of opportunities at the local level, can help to reduce tension and better protect everyday heritage.
This requires those in authority, however, to understand that heritage is not simply historic fabric, it is a community asset.
