The conservation, restoration, and protection of cultural heritage historical sites is carried out inaccordance with Law 16/1985 on Spanish Historical Heritage through Special Protection Plans. Theseurban planning instruments must order and manage various types of urban transformation andconservation processes. The 2005 Special Urban Planning for the Protection of the Historical Site ofCartagena (PEOPCH) established urban norms that, methodically, tried to regulate the different types ofactions. In this paper, the transformations that occurred in the historic centre of this city, in the southeastof Spain, between 2005-2021 are reviewed, reflecting the complexity of these complex’s regulations, aswell as planning possibilities to intervene on them. For this, the actions on the areas of intervention, theunitary building actions and the actions on the public space are reviewed. The results show the relationshipbetween current problems and different socioeconomic situations, with the proposals of urban specialplanning.
