How much of our built environment should be preserved for future generations? Who should decide what we keep and what we demolish? More importantly, who will pay the ever-increasing bill for heritage conservation?Using examples from Australia and the United Kingdom, this book debates the commercialisation of heritage and argues that market forces offer more opportunities than threats. A business-like approach to conservation coupled with greater public participation in decision making will help to give the past a future. Sustaining Heritage is recommended reading for planners, policy makers, conservation professionals and anyone concerned about how we should best preserve and interpret our rich historical legacy.
