Purpose of the Study: In recent decades, social sustainability remained comparatively less exposed than economic and environmental sustainability. In addition, the implementation and integration of sustainable development within a management framework is the main problem of urban regeneration projects. Moreover, there is a lack of studies offering the most proficient method to make urban regeneration planning exercises sustainable. Therefore, this research aims to develop a sustainable heritage-led urban regeneration planning framework.
Design/Methodology: First, iterative approach is used in conjunction with a literature review to develop the first version of the theoretical framework. Then, the validation of the findings and further improvements are established by conducting semi-structured interviews with professionals in Northern Cyprus. Finally, a questionnaire survey is conducted to validate the final version of the conceptual framework.
Findings: Content analysis results showed that there is a lack of knowledge towards heritage-led urban regeneration among the local community and it is the main source of sustainable planning problems. Therefore, a questionnaire survey is conducted to validate this problem. The results validated that there is a sustainability perception difference between the local community and professionals, and the knowledge level of the local community was not satisfactory.
Contribution to Knowledge: This research contributes the literature by integrating sustainable heritage-led urban regeneration into a planning framework. Moreover, this research is the first sustainable urban regeneration planning framework in the literature customised to be used in Northern Cyprus. Finally, the methodology to construct “eye of sustainable planning” framework proposed in this research can be used as a foundation for location specific sustainable planning frameworks.
