Samara is the sixth largest city in Russia, as well as an important social, political, economic, and cultural centre. Unfortunately, it is also one of the best examples of the process of systematic decline of the historic environments in Russian cities. A city's built heritage is an important part of its identity and that of its inhabitants. It reflects not only the history of the city, but also its unique set of social values and cultural richness. It can help create a sense of belonging and mutual understanding that strengthens local communities, at the same time that it attracts the interest of visitors and new residents.

A methodological model has been developed that links the morphological features of the historical environment of Samara with the parameters of reconstructive intervention in the urban development of the central part of the city. The model is considered as an evaluation of the existing approach in the historical centre of Samara on the basis of the existing Rules for development and land use. The neutral approach should enhance a balanced and equal discussion between all different stakeholders.
