The Chinese local legislation on protection to the historical ＆ cultural towns has made great progress since the 1990s. Steadily as they were been rationalizing, the institutions designed in the current local legislations turned to be more and more contradictory to the recent theoretical study and practical research on protection to the historical ＆ cultural towns. Therefore, it is necessary to conform to the practices on protection to the historical ＆ cultural towns and establish new principles in local legislations, especially the integral protection to the tangible and intangible cultural heritage, the attention to the harmony of the interests between government and interested parties.
