This meeting was aimed at World Heritage practitioners and took place in Bath Cricket Club, on 8th March 2017, with an evening social meal the night before. Its focus was on the UK planning systems in respect of World Heritage Sites – seeing if there was a ‘dovetail or disconnect’. The day looked at the different systems, and discussed a very wide range of case studies in terms of impact on World Heritage Sites. The event also had a couple of workshop sessions to look at issues and solutions – and the intention is that we can use this information to start to develop a position paper for government in respect of World Heritage and the Planning system. This post gives the presentations and other information from the event.
