CONSERVATION AND REDEVELOPMENT POLICY FOR BRITISH URBAN DOCK AREAS

Technological innovations in the 1960s led to fundamental changes in the location and the nature of dock and warehousing work. Cities throughout the world have adopted very different planning and development approaches to facing these changes in technology. This paper draws mainly on a survey of the British experience in order to identify common problems and suggest some ways of solving them. The first part briefly analyzes the factors which have made docklands redundant in many areas. Problems and needs as seen by local officials are then reviewed; and some of the general difficulties facing efforts to reintegrate dock areas into the larger socioeconomic systems of a city are described. Then, the alternative policies of conservation and redevelopment are discussed. Finally, future policy directions are considered.
