Cadw’s purpose is to work for an accessible, well-protected historic environment.  Historic assets are protected by a number of different designations, some statutory and some not – listing, scheduling and protection of historic wrecks are statutory designations carried out by Cadw working to set criteria, on behalf of the Welsh Ministers.  Local authorities designate conservation areas.  Other assets are included on national or local non-statutory registers.
