County Audits are carried out in association with the Local Authority and the Heritage Council. Nineteen countries are now completed and the data and reports are available.
Sites are assessed on their own merits under each thematic network. Sites that are appraised, but which are not selected for NHA designation, are classified as ‘County Geological Sites’ (CGS), as recognised in the National Heritage Plan (2002). This enables their integration into county development plans.
