Istanbul’s Historical Peninsula Put Under Protection

The Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality City Council has adopted a plan by the municipality’s City Planning Directorate that concerns İstanbul’s historical peninsula.

The plan, which concerns the protection of the historical peninsula, the part of the city located within the old city walls, by demolishing illegally built buildings in the area, preserving green areas surrounding historical places and not allowing any construction close to historical sites was approved after amendments were made by the Regional Board of Protection of Cultural and Natural Assets.
