Representatives of the architects, surveyors, landscape architects and planners' institutes sought law changes to protect graded historic buildings at the Antiquities Advisory Board meeting yesterday. They said there should be a system for owners of buildings to conserve parts of buildings and have development rights transferred to other sites as compensation. The government said negotiations would be conducted on a case-by-case basis. Public consultations about grading 1,444 historic buildings ended yesterday.
