Development in World Heritage Cities
Alsalloum, Ataa (2018). Development in World Heritage Cities. The Building Conservation Directory (Pp. 25-28).
Built heritage in use must accommodate change from time to time if it is to remain in use, and the term conservation has come to define the process of managing change sympathetically. Urban areas are no different. Successful management of development and regeneration requires thorough analysis and understanding of the heritage values at stake, particularly in a world heritage site (WHS) such as Edinburgh, Bath or Liverpool. Here development must be both inclusive and sustainable, so we need to understand the area’s ‘outstanding universal value’ for which the WHS was designated.
