The main drawback of urban consercation in Malaysia is hypothesisted bye the conflicting ways in which various stakeholders perceive the role of urban conservation. They failed to see that conservation is directed among other things to; maintaining places of cultural significance i.e, a whole neighbourhood, part or even the entire town, and it focuses on ensuring a harmonious relationship of old and new. The key to a common goal in achieving successful urban conservation is in the understanding of the appropriate approaches towards tackling the complex issues of 'living city' as in the case of the World Heritage City of Melaka. The principles for the development of practical conservation guideline is lacking especially in the aspect of enhancing the 'liveliness' in a semi run-down urban areas that was once the hub of a particular town.
