Oxford Heritage Assets Register Criteria
The City Council are preparing a register of locally valued heritage assets as part of the Oxford Heritage Plan. The register will provide recognition of the importance of heritage assets that do not meet national requirements for protection as listed buildings, scheduled monuments or registered parks and gardens but are, nevertheless, valued locally for their contribution to the character and identity of the city, its neighbourhoods and communities. Whilst they won't receive the legal protection of designated heritage assets, the Council will seek to conserve the significance of these locally recognised heritage assets in their decision making and planning and will use the register to increase understanding and enjoyment of the historic environment.
To determine whether heritage assets have a level of significance that merits their inclusion on the register we have developed a set of criteria that candidate heritage assets will be assessed against. The four criteria have been designed to help understand what the significance of the asset is that should be sustained for the future as well as providing a test of the level of that significance. In this consultation we want to find out how appropriate and robust you feel these criteria are.
The involvement of Oxford's community in the preparation of the Heritage Asset Register is a key element of the assessment process. We want it to be easy for local residents and businesses to nominate the features of the environment they feel contribute to the heritage of their neighbourhood. To help local people to propose candidate heritage assets with the information to explain why they are suitable for inclusion on the register we have developed a nomination form in partnership with representatives of the local community. The form provides the cues to explain how the candidate heritage asset is considered to fulfil the requirements of each criterion. In this consultation we want to find out how accessible the form is for the wider community. Is the language clear? Is it obvious what you should do to complete it and how it will be used?
We are asking the public, including local landowners and businesses to take a look at the criteria and nomination form and answer four simple questions.
This consultation has now closed.
