Heritage Conservation

Kayani bakery Pune University








Urban areas house most of the man made structures created over centuries. While some have turned to dust with the ravages of time, many heritage structures survive and are worthy of protection  intelligent conservation and preservation.

From inception, Parisar has been involved in the Urban Heritage Conservation movement. In most growing cities, heritage structures, both built and natural are under serious threat. Building activity, construction of roads and flyovers, pressures for increasing FSI and general apathy towards our heritage has led to neglect, damage and destruction of many structures possessing architectural, historical, social and artistic qualities. Even after the setting up of an Urban Heritage Conservation Committee under the amended Town Planning Act provisions, Pune has lost many heritage structures. Parisar along with other NGO's like BEAG (Bombay Environmental Action Group) and INTACH has been actively working for protection and conservation of the city's heritage.
