Abstract (in English)

The paper traces the beginnings of the preservation society movement from its foundation in Britain in 1977 to the present day and notes particularly how legislation is now so strongly entrenched as to give reason for some doubt as to whether the process of listing (i.e. scheduling) buildings of special architectural of historic interes is not in danger of overreaching itself. To date over 300.000 buildings have been listed and over 5.000 conservation areas created. In the former case no buildings may be demolished or altered without permission.
