Blaenavon World Heritage Site Management Plan



Blaenavon World Heritage Site Management Plan picture
We have been commissioned as part of a team being led by CBA to prepare a new management plan for the Blaenavon Industrial Landscape which was inscribed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2000. Major sites such as Blaenavon Ironworks and Big Pit, together with the wider landscape with its relicts of mineral exploitation, manufacturing, transport and settlements together tell the story of the iron and coal industry that was pre-eminent in south Wales in the 19th century. The management plan is to be updated focusing on the opportunities provided by the WHS that might be exploited for the benefit of the local community.
