A participatory approach to the assessment of built heritage: an example from Wellington, Aotearoa/ New Zealand (PLA Notes 46)
In New Zealand the preservation of the built environment is important for cultural reasons, as well as aiding urban renewal. However, the people that select which buildings are protected often come from, the white middle-classes. This paper discusses the use of participation to involve indigenous and ethnic groups in the decision making process.
