Sille, which for some people it is a Byzantium village, for some other it is a Central Anatolian settlement dated to very old periods, where either Byzantines or Turks, as being Orthodox Christian and Muslim, lived together. Sille, which is known a very important centre up to the end of 19 Century, fell into a declining period at the end of that century, and accelerated its speed during the Post Exchanging period realized together with Lozan Agreement, and reached to the 21 Century. A slowly increasing interest, being not much as in old times, by Conservation Development Plan (CDP), providing tourism attraction, and the positive process experienced during conservation implementations (after 2004) have led to a significant activities in Sille. In this study, starting with the Sille case, it is tried to take the picture of conservation implementations in Turkey within the framework experienced during the period of 10 years after the approval of the plan, by examining the investigations carried out before CDP and the plan decisions taken.
