Heritage Planning Principles and Process
“Heritage Planning Principles and Process” is essential reading for anyone practicing or studying in the field of heritage conservation and historic preservation. It provides a comprehensive overview of heritage planning as an area of professional practice. It addresses the context and principles of heritage planning, land-use law, planning practice, and international heritage doctrine, all set within the framework of larger societal issues such as sustainability and ethics.
Hal’s book also recognizes changing approaches to heritage conservation, particularly the shift from the conservation of physical fabric to the present emphasis on retaining values, associations and stories that historic places hold for their communities.
