This section is worth 70 out of 100 points. The average score is multiplied by 7 to give a score out of 70. It must score at least 42 points to gain the accreditation. When they visit the site, the judges will be assessing the following criteria through questions and through observation: Good conservation standards + Relevance of the conservation and management plans to what they see evidenced + Practical conservation work carried out to high standards (e.g. repointing) + Staff, contractors and volunteers understand the conservation standards and work to them Historic features given prominence + Historic features are a celebrated part of the landscape, whether that be subliminally or overtly + Historic features are regarded as an integral part of the site operation as a whole, not boxed off or hidden Restoration / recreation of landscape features + Evidence that what has been identified in the conservation plan has been put into practice on the ground in accordance with the plan + Good quality outcome – demonstrated through the finish, use of materials, reflection of original design features Historic features intact and in use + Architectural features, detailed design elements and buildings (for example, sporting features, fountains, drinking fountains, bandstands, bedding displays) should still be in use and not derelict + Where adequate maintenance is impossible, records should be kept of their existence and measures put in place to retain the essence of what was there. For example, rather than trying to retain large areas of poor bedding displays, it would be better for some areas to be recorded and grassed over, and reduced but strategically located areas of bedding maintained. Future aspirations should be recorded in the conservation plan Information available and evidence that historic features are enjoyed by the public + Lists of events and relevant interpretation information should be made available + People can be seen actively enjoying the historic features
