World Heritage Site Management

The Trust has recently submitted a response to the Government’s consultation on the Protection of World Heritage Sites. Read the consultation document here, and the Trust’s response here.

World Heritage Site Management Plans are seen as an effective way of caring for sites. The Bath World Heritage Site Steering Group, a partnership committee of local and national organisations including English Heritage, B&NES Council, and the Bath Preservation Trust oversaw the preparation of the Bath Management Plan. The Steering Group continues to meet a number of times a year.

The current Bath World Heritage Site management Plan 2010-2016 covers a range of topics including conservation, planning, education, transport, community life and tourism. Bath Preservation Trust has a commitment to overseeing the effective implementation of the aims and objectives of the management plan and ensuring that the state of the conservation and management of the site is effectively measured and monitored by the World Heritage Site Manager.

The Trust responded to a local consultation on the current Management Plan in 2010 read our response here .
