Town Planning Review

Centenary paper: Urban conservation and the shaping of the English city

Town Planning Review (2011), 82, (4), 361–392.

Abstract

The role of urban conservation as an aim of planning evolved through the twentieth century, shifting from the margins to the mainstream and in the process becoming an inescapable element of the way English cities remake themselves. This paper charts the development of conservation planning and in particular the historical trajectory of a variety of urban contexts including 'jewel cities', long acknowledged as historic, and the core English cities more recently accepted as having significant historic environments. Finally, we briefly discuss the changing purpose and function of urban conservation, reflecting on both historical and contemporary conservation policy and practice.
