Consequently, varying types of conservation and development planning policy are determined by referencing uniqueness of each character zone;

restricted development zone including first degree archaeological sites and monumental structures like Roman Bath, Donuktaş and Roman Road

high urban archaeological potential / conservation zones where traditional and low-rise building that have made minimum intervention to urban archaeological layers and probable archaeologically sensitive area, which should be researched in detail

controlled or limited development zones, where agreements with contractual solutions between urban planners, archaeologists, land owners and developers are possible to set a balance between conservation and development

reserve areas; conserved open areas, parks and similar brown fields can be defined reserve areas to analyse varying archaeological stratification by developing research techniques in future.

development zones where low urban archaeological potential and minimum risk of destruction on urban archaeological resources
