Harborough District Council Local List of Non-Designated Heritage Assets

Do you think the initial 16 entries on the list reflect the varied heritage of the Harborough district?

Representation ID: 8273

Received: 03/09/2021

Respondent: Leicestershire County Council

Representation Summary:

The list presents examples of buildings/structures that might feature on the list, as such it is limited in breadth, spread and doesn't address asset types otherwise referred to in the supporting information, notably designed landscapes and archaeological sites. Carefully consideration needs to be given to the preparation of the list, to ensure the 'local' objective of the list is achieved, also to reflect to existing management and curation of the historic environment. The lack of reference to the Leicestershire & Rutland Historic Environment Record is a gap, given its role and coverage, especially in relation to archaeological sites and landscapes

Harborough District Council Local List of Non-Designated Heritage Assets

Do you have any comments on the assessment criteria and scoring system?

Representation ID: 8274

Received: 03/09/2021

Respondent: Leicestershire County Council

Representation Summary:

The introduction and summary sections lack consistency in their inclusion of archaeological sites and historic landscapes. It is unclear how the independent panel will be constituted and how it will be used, notably in respect of sites at the 'lower end of the approval threshold' . The scoring system is not detailed in full, and seems most applicable to buildings/structures, significantly less so to archaeological sites. The conflation of rarity and representativeness is not well explained/justified. The lack of recognition of the County HER, the primary and most completed curated register of heritage assets in the district is an omission.
