Urban heritage is increasingly expected to contribute to urban development, not least in cities that have experienced a harsh economic, social and spatial structural change. To address these large-scale structural challenges a number of ideals have influenced the practice of urban planning and design (e.g., New Urbanism, Re-Urbanism). A stimulating question lies in the possibility of using urban heritage and planning and design measures—what we call Heritage Urbanism—to revive cities, towns and communities. This question will be discussed in four articles following an editorial introduction. The articles will scrutinize the question from empirical viewpoints/cases, but in particular from different theoretical perspectives: Heritage management; place branding/marketing; urban design; and infrastructure development. Moreover, based in the various theoretical perspectives, the articles will address the issue of citizen input to urban heritage and urban development management. We intend to invite several authors to contribute to this Special Issue.Dr. Krister Olsson
