New World Heritage status management plan open for consultation

Bath’s World Heritage status – given to the city by UNESCO in 1987 for its archaeological, historical, social, geographical, geothermal and architectural importance – requires that the city maintains a ‘management plan’ to ensure that the Outstanding Universal Value of the Site and its setting is understood, protected and sustained.Big World Heritage trans + colour

The city is currently working on producing its third such long-term plan which will be endorsed by B&NES only after a period of consultation involving local boies and the general public.

Comments can be made via the Bath & North East Somerset Council website from Monday 23 May to Friday 15 July 2016 by following this link   – See more at: http://www.bathworldheritage.org.uk/management-plan#sthash.XFuZin0d.dpuf

It’s certainly worth setting aside some time to have a look at the proposals and do have your say. Public consultation opens on Monday, May 23rd.

Though the city is a major tourist magnet it is also a living city which has to provide jobs and houses for its citizens. It has to manage the past with the needs of the present.
