Abstract (in English)

Pursuant to the Slovenian Cultural Heritage Protection Act, the conservation plan may be a component of project documentation for obtaining a building permit if a planned intervention in cultural heritage structures is complex, if there is threat to or danger of destruction of protected values, if conservation-restoration work must be conducted during an intervention, and always for interventions in structural elements of a monument. Despite the broad legal option enabling conservation requirements to be treated in a manner equal to other areas during development interventions in heritage, and the Act being in force for five years, preparing conservation plans has yet to become a fully established part of the practice. The article shows a review of the reasons for this situation and the paths to a solution, as the authorisation by law to prescribe the preparation of the conservation plan is a rare tool for the conservation of heritage in the complex sphere of development. Conservation work must be prudently directed so that the investor sees the commission and approval of the conservation plan not only as meeting a legal obligation but as an offer of assistance by the society, and an opportunity for his success.
