From 1955 till 1982 the province of Friesland suffered a loss of 70 dairy-products factories. Geographical circumstances have had such a decisive influence on the re-use of the industrial buildings, that somes "rules" could be derived from the data. Undeniably there has been a widespread neglect of the symbolical, historical and monumental values of the dairy-products factories in their specific local and regional setting. Functionally, many of these factories underwent a process of grading down. Moreover the majority of the factory buildings is subject to delapidation or are on the list for demolition. Administrations and local communities have overlooked potentialities of the former factories for local community purposes.
