Evaluation of the financial instruments within tje conservation activities

Şahin, Evrim
In Turkey, the immovable cultural properties are conserved by being listed either as single units or as conservation zones in accordance with relative laws and regulations. This legal registration restricts the development rights of these immovable estates. While the owner of the immovable looses the development and the productive rights over his estate, he is also undertaken the maintenance, repair and restoration responsibilities of the building. The purpose of this study is to analyze the achievements and the deficiencies of the financial aids supplied for maintenance, repair and restoration of cultural properties in Turkey, to survey possible contributions of new financial instruments which have been came into force with the last legal arrangements and to make policies for strengthening the present instruments while new financial instruments are also proposed.
