Protection and management of world heritage sites in England - English Heritage guidance note to Circular for England on the protection of world heritage sites
Supports and amplifies the planning circular for England on the protection of World Heritage Sites, which gives advice on the level of protection and management needed for World Heritage Sites, and draws attention to recent legislative measures designed to enhance the protection of these sites. Explains what World Heritage Sites are in international and national contexts, the role of the UNESCO World Heritage Committee and World Heritage Centre and the role of the UK Government. Also sets out the importance of the planning system and sustainable community strategies in protecting and sustaining World Heritage Sites. In addition, it describes the function of World Heritage Site Management Plans and the methods used to prepare them.
Replaced by the Planning practice guidance suite which is only available in its entirety online at http://planningguidance.planningportal.gov.uk/ ; we are therefore unable to add it to The Construction Information Service. Relates to the following: DCLG Circular 07/2009: Circular on the protection of world heritage sites (English Heritage, 2009).
Now known as Historic England, English Heritage produced a wide variety of publications with subjects ranging from repair, conservation and management of the historic environment to funding and grants.
