What is a Heritage Asset?

A heritage asset is a shorthand for a range of man-made structure of architectural or historic interest which make up our historic environment.

Heritage assets include buildings and landscapes, buried remains and historic areas.  Some but not all of these have statutory protection as listed buildings or scheduled monuments. Others are included in designated conservation areas, historic parks and gardens, World Heritage Sites, National Parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.


Support the conservation, restoration and re-use of Ulster's built heritage.
