    Abstract

    This study considers whether the Conservation Areas of Portsmouth are successfully protecting and enhancing the naval heritage of the city. By using the examples of Old Portsmouth and Gunwharf Quays the study looks at a variety of issues. These range from whether a new development can be considered worthy of conservation to whether the character of a Conservation Area can be destroyed by modern day development. The study concludes that the designation of Old Portsmouth has been successful in safeguarding its heritage. However there is still some ambiguity surrounding whether Gunwharf Quays has been successful in safeguarding its heritage. Whilst residents and the City Council recognise the historical importance of Old Portsmouth and the reasons why it is a Conservation Area the same cannot be said for Gunwharf Quays. This is because Gunwharf Quays is a new development and residents appear to feel that the area is not worthy of conservation.
