A "LOCAL LIST” for PONTELAND
Prepared by the PONTELAND CIVIC SOCIETY for the
PONTELAND NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN GROUP
This Draft “Local List” is of buildings, open spaces or other local features – not otherwise formally Listed – for possible incorporation into the emerging Neighbourhood Plan for Ponteland.
The individual items will be formally incorporated after appropriate consultation, and following any necessary modifications which may be required.
The criteria used are applied in a Local, rather
than a National context, and are loosely based upon those in the Historic England (formerly English
Heritage) Good Practice Guide . They may be summarised as follows:-
(a) The Age of an Asset;
(b) The Rarity – as judged against local characteristics;
(c) The Aesthetic Value – intrinsic design value relating to distinctive local characteristics;
(d) Group Value – groups with a clear visual, design or historic relationship;
(e) Evidential Value – as enhanced by a significant contemporary or historic written record;
(f) Historic Association – as enhanced by a significant historical association or an association with a local figure of note;
(g) Archaeological interest – where the level of evidence base is sufficiently compelling, or if a distinct area can be identified;
(h) Designed Landscapes – relating to the interest attached to locally important designed landscapes, parks and gardens;
(i) Landmark Status – having strong communal or historical associations or of a particularly striking aesthetic value, or
(j) Social and Communal Value – places perceived to be a source of local identity, distinctiveness, social interaction and coherence; often residing in intangible aspects of heritage contributing to the “collective memory” of a place.
Generally, some combination of the above factors will be involved.
