SPECIAL HERITAGE PROTECTION PLAN AND CATALOG OF GOODS IN THE BISBAL D'EMPORDÀ
In January, our office was entrusted with the planning document that will protect and regulate the historical, architectural and environmental heritage of the capital of Baix Empordà.
The object of this Special Plan is the protection, conservation, research, dissemination and promotion of the cultural heritage of La Bisbal d'Empordà of all those assets that deserve special protection and defense, so that they can be enjoyed by its inhabitants and we can pass them on in the best conditions to future generations.
In the framework of urban planning, a Special Plan for the Protection and Catalog of Historical, Architectural and Environmental Heritage is a normative document that allows municipalities to protect the most significant heritage of the municipality.
Through individualized files, it identifies the sets and relevant heritage assets (architectural, archaeological, palaeontological, sociocultural, ethnological, natural and environmental or landscape) and establishes the level of protection to which they are subject, determining the type of possible interventions or actions in accordance with the regulatory content of the Plan, in order to guarantee the preservation of values and traditional forms of human occupation of the land.
The editorial team led by Pep Fortià, architect, is also made up of Rosa Maria Gil, historian; Dolors Codina, archaeologist; Xavier Busquets, architect; Pere Ylla, lawyer; Joan Solà, geologist; and Carme Calafat, environmentalist.
