Planning reform, heritage management and sense of place
Findings from PICH project

In most countries the historic built environment is conserved and managed to a greater or lesser degree by governance regimes. The form and quality of governance has a determining effect on the conservation of the built environment and the tangible and intangible cultural heritage that it embodies. Buildings, spaces and landscapes play an important role in creating social cohesion by connecting people to their cultural heritage and providing a sense of belonging to a place or “sense of place”.

This seminar summarises the findings of the JPI Heritage Plus PICH Project’s investigation of the impact of the reform of urban planning on the historic built environment. The project team conducted twelve in-depth case studies in Italy, the Netherlands, Norway and the UK covering three settings: the built heritage of historic urban cores, former industrial areas and the urban landscape. A summary of Dutch case studies and their findings will be presented in this seminar.
