Abstract

In urban conservation, it is essential for users to relate themselves to the place they live in and to establish a connection with that space. In other words, individual should have sense of belonging towards the living space. Having unique identity of the place where identity is to be established makes this bilateral relationship stronger. It is foreseen that the increase in the living time of the individual in a specific place has a positive contribution to these relations. For this reason, the research is based on the interaction of living time, sense of belonging, urban identity and urban conservation. The perception of the sense of belonging, urban identity and urban conservation are examined initially and then the contribution of living time to sense of belonging, urban identity and urban protection process are separately investigated. By using statistical methods have been tried to show how the concepts of sense of belonging, urban identity and urban conservation affect each other.
