Abstract (in English)

This paper examines the capacity of a devolved planning system to mediate between the competing interests of conservation and development in historic environments. The paper focuses on recent developments in the British planning system and uses a case study of industrial World Heritage sites to explore the tension between localised decision-making, national objectives and international obligations. The paper concludes with a management framework for sustainable development in historic urban environments.
