Keywords: Statement of Significance

Are required when works affect a heritage asset, these can be listed buildings, buildings in conservation areas, locally listed buildings, places of worship and registered parks or archaeological sites and are used for obtaining permissions and consents or grant applications. They will also be required for a planning application including those to non-designated buildings if the work which is being carried out affects the setting of a heritage asset. The document sets out what makes the heritage significant and is a detailed description of the buildings evolution and its life. Significance can be derived from its physical features and also its historical importance with links to events or people in the past including any historical events that have happened nearby. On completion the document provides an invaluable record which can be used to assess the impact on the asset from possible physical changes or proposed new uses. They also act like a handbook and can be useful for newcomers to familiarise themselves with the building.
