Heritage Identification 

To identify heritage places for inclusion in the heritage schedule in the Tasman Resource Management Plan (TRMP) the Council uses the following heritage assessment criteria, including whether the feature:

  • has a strong association with significant people or events or is important as a reflection of social patterns of its time.
  • is a notable example of a particular style, architecture or period, or displays craftsmanship, artistry and technology of intrinsic interest or by virtue of its design, conforms to a past or present sense of beauty.
  • combines buildings or objects to form an area of community  importance, or historical or architectural merit. 
  • is a landmark that makes an important contribution to the identity of the neighbourhood or road in which it is sited by  virtue of its situation, silhouette, bulk, colour or texture. 
  • is of archaeological or scientific importance.
