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.
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.
