Conservation and Planning: Changing Values in Policy and Practice

Synopsis

Conserving historic buildings continues to excite and inflame opinion. The means of protecting such buildings and areas are well established but frequently suffer a lack of wider understanding. Conservation and Planning takes a detailed look at the way these processes have evolved and their use today by policy makers and local decision makers. The rise of the urban renaissance agenda, the crystalisation of sustainable development and the ascendancy of regional governance are all significant factors which have influenced the policy and practice of conserving historic buildings. The interpretation of value in the built environment is also significant, with a consideration of buildings as independent artefacts often overshadowing the value in the environmental and cultural context. This book presents original research into how national and local decision-makers construct and implement conservation of the built environment. The findings in this book challenge many of the assumptions supporting conservation.
