Abstract (in English)

In the Netherlands preservation was first focused on the single object. Later the monument was considered as being a part of an urban context. Preservation is seen as a goal embedded in urban policies. The results achieved by preservation activities in historic sites depend on the quality of the specific town planning policies for the areas in question. Such policies should embrace not only the historically important parts of the urban environment, but also the urban entity as a whole.
