Physical environment and environmental values, to a certain extent, have been changed by industrialization, urbanization and modernization processes, which were experienced in different periods. Especially, as a result of urbanization policies implemented after 1950, special areas, the areas and buildings of first protection priority were identified in order to protect cultural heritage facing the threat of extinction.
