Luleå University of Technology, Department of Civil, Environmental and Natural Resources Engineering, Architecture and Water.ORCID iD: 0000-0002-0440-1464
2017 (English)In: Journal of Cultural Heritage Management and Sustainable Development, ISSN 2044-1266, E-ISSN 2044-1274, Vol. 7, no 2, 110-128 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Purpose –This article investigates how different notions about the conservation of builtheritage develop in a situation of structural change that demands either the demolition orrelocation of a large number of historic buildings.Design/methodology/approach – The analysis is based on a case study of the on-going urbantransformation of the Swedish mining town Kiruna. The investigation was based on the textanalysis of urban planning documents and media reporting, which was used to distinguishstakeholders’ positions towards conservation based on authenticity aspects.Findings – The conservation goals of the urban planning process are unclear and thestakeholders have conceptually different views regarding which parts of the town’s builtheritage are of significance, which negatively affects the ability to make well informed,transparent and intelligible management decisions. Stakeholder views on the management ofbuilt heritage span from the relocation of a few, single historic buildings to maintaining theintegrity of the town as a heritage site by moving a significant number of buildings.Research limitations/implications – The Kiruna case, being exceptional because conservationin situ is impossible, has the potential to highlight the relation between single historic buildingsand the integrity of an urban heritage site, as well as implications for conservation on theurban scale.Originality/value – This investigation contributes to knowledge of built heritage in situationsof structural change, which is of concern for planning and conservation practice. Currently,many urban areas are under pressure of transformations or destruction
