The Outline Development Plan 2011 has identified as many as 40 buildings, houses, sites and monuments in the City. It has many heritage structures, monuments and areas, which needs to be addressed for conservation. These heritage structures and areas have come under tremendous threat of new developments due to improper approach by the agencies involved in conserving including the people at large. The paper focuses on Fontainhas heritage areas by addressing the issues that are faced by the heritage area and proposes planning measures for regulating the heritage conservation areas for harmonious development in the City of Panaji
