This document is a preliminary draft for an Environmental Impact Assessment procedure. Its aim is to provide draft guidelines for the assessment of likely significant effects of urban development projects on the urban environment including material assets and cultural heritage. This procedure is intended as a way to propose and ensure an active conservation policy for urban historical areas. It is based on state-of-the-art methods and the knowledge of the experts involved in the SUIT project. It is also based on the guidelines presenting the grid of analysis to be used by stakeholders in a joint conflict analysis with examples and guidance, the decision-matrix of tools and methodologies as well as the preminiary EU cross-comparison of EIA application. The procedure suggested in this report is phrased according to the requirements expressed in the Directive 85/337/EEC asamended by Directive 97/11/EC. It intends to integrate the Aarhus convention requirements, and to initiate the first test application.
