In spatial planning and impact assessments, cultural heritage values are assessed and form a part of the knowledge base for prioritisation of different values and interests. The ecosystem service framework, in which cultural heritage is included as a sub-category of cultural services, is one relevant framework for such valuation and prioritisation in resource management. Another relevant approach is the identification of culturally significant areas, in which material as well as immaterial cultural heritage are considered important elements in the assessment of cultural values.
In this project we investigate the consequences of applying different frameworks for assessing cultural heritage values in planning and impact assessment. Focusing on case-studies of spatial planning in coastal areas, we discuss challenges and opportunities of different approaches to valuation and identification of cultural values, as well as their implication for the management of cultural heritage.
