Abstract (in English)

The paper will concentrate on four issues: (1) Financial assistance for conservation, restoration and rehabilitation of the heritage, (2) Skills shortages and usage and the role of inventories, surveys and associated management tools for assessing the endangered heritage, (3) Enforcement, sanctions and penal measures and (4) Integration between heritage conservation and spatial planning and development control to prevent damage to and encourage the rehabilitation and use of heritage resources. It draws on examples from western Europe in relation to urban conservation initiatives in Germany (the Städtebauliche Denkmalschutz programme); funding mechanisms such as the Heritage Lottery Fund in the UK; the effectiveness of prosecutions for unauthorised actions and means of publicly recording them as a deterrent in the UK and Ireland; and the integration between spatial planning and heritage protection systems in the UK and France (using examples of the secteurs sauvegardés, and other heritage zones: ZPPAUPs and AVAP) - emphasising the role of rehabilitation and the importance and methods of using the heritage as a resource for society. It contrasts these examples in the context of the four themes by considering issues raised through draft Heritage Assessment Reports on legal and institutional issues formulated in the period October 2012 to March 2013 relating to six countries (Albania, Bosnian and Herzegovina, Croatia, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia), which are engaged in the Ljubljana Process II, a joint initiative through the Council of Europe’s Regional Programme on cultural and natural heritage in South East Europe, launched in 2003, with support from the European Commission.
