Auther : Nada S. Alyazidi - Dr. Waleed S. Alzamil

Objectives:The paper aims to review and analyze the historical conservation policies of 'Historic Jeddah', the Gate to Makkah, and to extrapolate the most important challenges and effects associated with these policies, in a way that contributes in the future in avoiding problems and maximizing the positive aspects. Method: The theoretical and descriptive approach was used to review the historical conservation policies of 'Historic Jeddah', the Gate to Makkah as a case study. The historical method was used to analyze urban conservation plans starting from the early 1980s, and even urban conservation plans issued by the Municipality of Jeddah Governorate. The study relied on survey data, government, and UNESCO reports. Results: The urban conservation policies of 'Historic Jeddah' are based on three main principles that include restoration, reconstruction, or new construction. The results indicated that most of the historical buildings need to be restored representing about 82% of the total buildings in the area, while 14% need to be reconstructed, and 4% are vacant land that would require new construction. Conclusion: Developing a comprehensive strategy for dealing with historical city centers, that takes into account the development of their own features, and proposing appropriate policies for them in line with the Kingdom's 2030 vision.
