English Heritage has recently produced 'Understanding place: historic areas assessments: principles and practice', the latest in a series of general guidance publications and character studies of localities. It aims to assist local authorities, practitioners, developers, community groups and others assess the character and significance of historic areas, be they town or city centres, suburbs, villages or other urban and rural landscapes. Case studies are included, and the entire document is freely available online.
