The city of Salford has a long and fascinating history, which is reflected not only in its wide range of heritage assets but also the identity of its communities and neighbourhoods.
This history of Salford has left it with a diverse range of heritage assets, with the potential for further important palaeo-environmental and archaeological evidence to be discovered. The city’s pivotal role in the industrial revolution is reflected in this heritage.
A heritage asset is a building, monument, site, place or landscape identified as having a degree of significance meriting consideration in planning decisions.
Heritage assets include designated heritage assets (such as scheduled monuments, listed buildings, registered parks and gardens, and conservation areas) and non-designated assets identified by the local planning authority (such as through local listing).
