The overall aim of this chapter is to investigate whether the notion of culturalvalue can have utility as a context for urban and regional developmentstrategies. It does this by proposing a conceptualisation of ‘cultural assets’that encompasses both tangible and intangible resources, as well as resourcesexisting and yet to be created. The purpose of the conceptualisation is toestablish a framework within which we can better understand how culturalvalue might be activated or generated in urban and regional areas and sobecome a context for developmental strategies. Importantly, this paper alsosets out to provide further insight into the notion of cultural value itself,particularly in relation to matters of definition, and the notion’s utility in other areas of theory and practice.
