Two conservation plans and reports done for Newcastle City Council by North East Civic Trust detail the architectural and heritage significance of the City Pools and Turkish Baths and lay down guidelines of how the features of the buildings should be maintained. The Grade 11 listed Turkish Baths are particularly important from a heritage point of view, being one of only 13 remaining Turkish Baths in the country with only 10 of these remaining open to the public (at that time).

The report states:

The Baths ARCHITECTURAL significance is HIGH, and are one of only 4 listed 1920s baths in England. In the region is it more intact that the other 3 listed baths.

The HISTORICAL Significance is HIGH, it contains one of only 18 (at the time, now estimated to be 13) Turkish Baths still operating in Britain (of which only 7 are listed).
