Values and a values-based approach to management and decision-making processes over cultural heritage are explored and critically reviewed. It is argued that a broader range of values, particularly those emanating from the 'dark side', should be accommodated into future values-based theory and practice if decisions are to be more comprehensive and transparent. The paper underlines the necessity for those working with cultural heritage, including within the arena of statutory land-use planning, to engage more deeply with cross-disciplinary and international perspectives on heritage values.
