Abstract (in English)

This report emphasizes people of communities should play a principal part to conserve and inherit the historic heritages and have possibilities to do that. The authority of Kyoto City Government has enforced the new landscape conservation policies mainly to reduce the height level of buildings located in almost whole urban area of Kyoto since September in 2007. The background of the enforcement is the consensus for aiming the conservation and inheritance of the historic landscape that has been brought by the people of communities. The irreplaceable, historic and intangible consciousness of people has been cultivated by the huge tangible heritage. Now, on this occasion, this report suggests an institution for community participation to promote the space rearrangement of historic city blocks, which include a system for proposing the optional alternatives.
