Abstract (in English)

The Village of Stirling, Alberta, is the subject of a case study to developan approach to planning for cultural landscapes. The cultural landscape planning approach is an adaptation of character planning and has the following components: Melnick characteristics for inventorying cultural landscapes, an analysis of the cultural landscape natural, cultural, visual, and meaning categories to define geographic cultural landscape character areas, and an adaptation of Canada Federal Heritage Review Office heritage building character statement concept to the development of a cultural landscape character statement. The cultural landscape character statement serves as a reference point for planning and acts as a catalyst for developing planning concepts. Cultural landscape character planning provides a holistic perspective from which to provide planning strategies for the conservation and interpretation of Stirling cultural landscape.
