Following a period of public consultation over the winter months the new World Heritage Site Management Plan is now available to view online. The new Plan format reflects the issues highlighted by our stakeholders at special Management Plan workshops we held last year.
The Plan sets out the various aims and objectives of the World Heritage Site Office for the next five years, from 2013 to 2018, to build upon the many achievements made since UNESCO World Heritage Site status was secured in 2006.
Deborah Boden, World Heritage Site Co-ordinator, said: “Considerable effort has been put into the creation of the new Management Plan, not only by the World Heritage team but also staff from all our partner authorities. We are particularly grateful to the design team of Cornwall Council’s Strategy, Localism and Communications staff for creating such an attractive document.
The World Heritage Partnership Board also thanks those who attended and contributed to the themed workshops in February 2012, and the local groups and members of the public who chose to submit comments on the draft Plan.
The World Heritage team looks forward to continuing to work to help preserve and promote Cornwall and west Devon’s internationally important mining heritage, for the benefit of this and future generations.”
