The Old City of Jerusalem- policy paper

Client: The Jerusalem Development Authority
Project Initiation: 2014
Location: The Old City of Jerusalem
Status: In approval process
Planning Team: Mike Turner, Ari Cohen, Ella Zilberfarb-Ben Ezra
In partnership with: TIK Projects

The policy paper presents goals, objectives and criteria for decisions on key issues, for achieving goals of the outline process for preservation and renewal of the Old City of Jerusalem. The policy papers lay out the proposed manner of leading the preservation and renewal process. The central documents are the outline planning documents, supported by several more planning documents on various issues. This document is based on goals and objectives appearing in a series of statutory, strategic and master plans as well as different policy papers.

The paper is laid out in two different complementary chapters. The first presents the planning policy for the Old City, describes the rationale behind the chosen policy and lays out its main principles. The second chapter details the provisions and instructions for planning in the Old City and is written as a compact dedicated planning guide for future planners. This need for a unified, non-statutory guide surfaced recently, and it seems that these policy papers by definition should remain independent, non-statutory papers
