Conservation and Planning: Changing Values in Policy and Practice

Front Cover
Taylor & Francis, 2004 - Nature - 285 pages

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.

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.
