Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


The main objective of the SUIT project is to promote the use of environmental impact assessment procedures as a way to foster a long-term active conservation of urban fragments. Local urban heritage greatly contributes to the richness and diversity of cultural identities throughout European cities. Its conservation requires a different approach to the one used for monumental built heritage. Urban areas are �living� systems, where private action and investment are crucial, especially when public funding possibilities are limited. Furthermore, the conservation of urban fragments cannot be separated from the need to enhance the quality of life for local residents.
This report includes a summary guidance to assist Competent Authorities with the environmental assessment of the impacts of certain plans, programmes or projects upon the heritage value of historical areas, six case study analyses and six position papers produced during the SUIT project.
