Hadrian's Wall World Heritage Site Management Plan 2015 - 19: Public consultation

17th December 2014

Trail users have a unique opportunity to influence the future management of Hadrian's Wall World Heritage Site by commenting on the plan's proposed aims, objectives and policies for the period 2015 - 19. 

In 1987 Hadrian's Wall was added to UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites and in so doing immediately elevated the story of the Roman occupation of Britain to one of the most important chapters in history of the World.  World Heritage status requires the UK government to produce a periodic management plan, the first of which was published in 1995.  This, the fourth version of the plan, is the over-arching document that sets the scene and influences the agendas of every organisation along the line of the Wall; the National Trail project is no exception to that.  Above all else the plan aims to ensure that Hadrian's Wall and all of its associated archaeology is protected and managed in a sustainable way for the benefit of this and future generations.

The closing date for comments is 9th January.  From the web link click on 'Policies' and 'Actions' at the top of the page in order to find the information.
