This course for senior students provides an advanced overview of the theoretical, practical and policy aspects of issues concerning the conservation of environmental, heritage, both cultural and natural. The course deals with the objectives and purpose of heritage conservation, the definitions of heritage at international, national, state and local level: methods by which planners work to balance the demand for heritage conservation with the other needs of the urban and natural environment. The course deals with both the conceptual and pragmatic aspects of heritage conservation, dealing with heritage in an inclusive sense: biophysical, indigenous, cultural and built. The aim of the course is to ensure that built environment professionals have a full understanding of the theoretical, legislative and administrative aspects of the conservation of heritage.
