Area conservation is primarily a planning endeavor. Its decisions are subject to the limitations of time and resources. Thakur, Evans, and Trache specify four stages for any project: firstly, defining the context; secondly, documenting the area's values and problems; thirdly, formulating the general policies and detailed guidelines; and lastly, implementing the project. Area conservation can be divided into statutory and action phases. Statutes specify the legislative and general policies and the ensuing organizational structure. Conservation must be flexible and responsive, adapting the methods of FWP to the unique character of each historic area, and to every detail of the area, first by conducting social as well as physical research and then applying the findings sensitively. The essential principle is environmental and social sustainability.
