Locally Valued Heritage Assets
Identifying local heritage assets as part of the neighbourhood plan is a way for local communities to celebrate the unique history that makes an area distinct. Unlike nationally Listed Buildings or Scheduled Monuments these non-designated heritage assets are not protected by law; but their status is important in planning considerations.
A number of heritage assets have already been identified by the steering group and are already populated on the map below.
We want to hear from you!
You can nominate Locally Valued Heritage Assets on the online map by adding a pin with a short description and a photo (if you have one). You can also support nominations already made (there are thumbs up and down buttons) or add your own thoughts about a nomination. If you believe your property has a heritage feature that should be considered as a local heritage asset we would really like to hear from you.
You can find out more about why we are including local heritage in our neighbourhood plan and the criteria it needs to meet by looking at this document.
Buildings that are already listed do not need to be identified. If you are unsure if an asset is already listed you can view the full map of listed buildings by clicking here.
As part of this process we are making a push to identify the locations of all "Bowood style" houses within Calne and Calne Without. There are thought to be as many as 100 in the local area, these assets contribute to the character of the area and a first step to protecting these assets is identifying them.
