Consultation is now open for feedback on the draft Old and New Towns of Edinburgh World Heritage Site Management Plan (2017-2022).
The draft Management Plan sets out issues and opportunities identified through a public engagement process over last summer. Issues include care and maintenance of buildings and streets, awareness of World Heritage Site status and contribution of new developments.
During the summer last year, over 1000 people took part in a consultation and gave us their views on how they felt the World Heritage Site is being run. What people told us has shaped the draft Management Plan. The draft Plan sets out a number of actions which will be taken forward by the management partners – City of Edinburgh Council, Historic Environment Scotland and Edinburgh World Heritage.
The consultation will run until 5 June 2017. Please take a moment to share your thoughts, ideas and suggestions.
There is also an opportunity to speak to us about the World Heritage Site on:
- 11 April at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, Argyll Street, Glasgow
- 18 April at the National Museum of Scotland, Chambers Street, Edinburgh
Watch this space for updates on the consultation over the coming weeks.
