What are designated and non-designated heritage assets?

Designated heritage assets include scheduled monuments, listed buildings, world heritage sites, shipwrecks, historic parks and gardens, national parks and conservation areas.

Non-designated heritage assets are other buildings and sites that also have some archaeological, architectural, artistic or historic interest, either locally or nationally.
