See also: display entry on this page. The value of conservation-led new design, regeneration and adaptive reuse of buildings in urban conservation areas has been proven to work. Despite this and the crucial social and environmental importance of the historic environment, heritage has been largely absent in the broader sustainable development debate. To those of us already working to protect the historic environment, its value is clear; historic areas and places act as an enabler and a driver to development, and projects defined by good design have the potential to be hugely socially rewarding. Through our own work and in discussion we must continue to advocate that integrating a concern for heritage protection and good new design in historic contexts into all areas of planning and design fundamentally contributes to sustainable and richer communities.
