According to the procedures to identify historical buildings by Ministry of Housing and Urban-rural Development of People¡¯s Republic of China and Bureau of Housing and Urban-rural Development of Sichuan, Mianyang will also plan to protect historical buildings of the whole city, aiming to complete all of the targeted tasks.

By definition, historical buildings refer to buildings and structures which embody conservation value, reflect historical and local characteristics, but are not publicly identified as cultural relics protection units and immobile cultural relics. The height, building volume, exterior appearance, style and other characteristics of historical buildings will be maintained. But the unification of the protection and utilization is strongly advocated to give full play to the cultural display and cultural heritage value of historical buildings. At the same time, Mianyang also actively guide social forces to participate in the protection and utilization of historical buildings, encourages historical buildings protection and utilization pilots, and explores to establish planning standards and management mechanisms for historical buildings protection and utilization.

In accordance with relevant provisions of the state, historical buildings must be well protected and old houses which have been identified as historical buildings, modern buildings and industrial heritages mustn¡¯t be randomly demolished and destructed to build counterfeit antiques. High-rise buildings and Western-style buildings mustn¡¯t be built in the areas where historical and cultural blocks and other historical buildings cluster, in case of damaging the historical characteristics of these areas. New buildings should be in harmony with historical buildings and their historical environment.
