|All inherited resources which people value for reasons beyond mere utility.|
Providing more detail, ICOMOS, in the International Cultural Tourism Charter (2002), stated that:
Heritage is a broad concept and includes the natural as well as the cultural environment. It encompasses landscapes, historic places, sites and built environments, as well as bio-diversity, collections, past and continuing cultural practices, knowledge and living experiences. It records and expresses the long processes of historic development, forming the essence of diverse national, regional, indigenous and local identities and is an integral part of modern life. It is a social dynamic reference point and positive instrument for growth and change.
|A building, monument, site, place, area or landscape identified as having a degree of significance meriting consideration in planning decisions, because of its heritage interest. Heritage asset includes designated heritage assets and assets identified by the local planning authority (including local listing).|
|Built heritage is; '...a structure or building of historic value. These structures are visible above ground level.'|
|Buried heritage is; '...a heritage asset beneath ground level, which may include earthworks.'|
