Historical monuments are the buildings and structures, memorable places and objects, material and spiritual artefacts representing the historical events in the life of a nation, development of the society and the country. They reflect the development process of the human society, revealing exactly how it has been happening at a certain time and in a certain place. North Cyprus is a country with a rich historical past. Since the country is in the ongoing process of development, mechanisms for protection of historical monuments are not well set yet and programs of identifying the historical monuments don’t exist at all.

Research and analyses for STREMAH 2009 -“Sustainable city planning: preserving historical objects” (where the mechanisms of classifications of non-monumental antique structures /NMAS/ according to their values -historical, cultural, archaeological, architectural - were invented), were used as a base for this article.

The aim of the research: In this paper we have concentrated on historical heritage and sustainable city planning issues. This article conveys the methods of identification and classification of historical NMAS, with registering them as historical structures needing protection as a future plan.

Subject of research: Anadolu Street,City of Lapethos, district of Kyrenia in North Cyprus.

Solution and results: the historical heritage of the district was examined and analyzed; physical inspection of NMAS was conducted; their functionality was interpreted; NMAS were classified and listed according to the type of heritage they belong to; suggestions were given for the sustainable city planning and utilization of NMAS in compliance with the basic principles of their preservation.

Keywords: Sustainable City Planning, Historical Heritage, Non-Monumental Attique Structures, Non-Monumental Historic Structure, Lapethos

Working as a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Architecture and Interior Architecture, I also am a students’ advisor, leading students through their daily problems. I prepare and present lectures to the students of First, Second and Third years on the subjects of Graphic Communication, Mechanical Systems in Buildings, as well as the Design Courses (practical work/studio). While teaching and helping my students in their designs of live projects, I share with pleasure my knowledge and experience with them. I’m certain that the live projects of modern buildings prepared by the students in our department will tremendously benefit the sustainable development of Lefke and the country of North Cyprus as a whole. During my free time I absorb and digest through my research the countries heritage, as well as write articles and other academic work on this topic / last publication STREMAH 2009/. I truly hope that my academic work and research will be of an advantage not only to my PhD thesis, but also to the sustainable development of this emerging country.
