Exploring the World Heritage Site and Beyond

Back in February of 2020, Winterbourne Stoke Parish Council, as stakeholders with the Stonehenge World Heritage Site Committee, were actively involved in the Exploring the World Heritage Site and Beyond project.  This project was commissioned by the Stonehenge World Heritage Site Committee, undertaken by the consultants Arup and funded by Highways England.

The consultants, Arup, have produced a final report which is, in effect, is a set of suggestions on landscape access, sustainable tourism and sustainable transport in the WHS. that are next to be reviewed and evaluated by a working group, who will identify priority projects stemming from this report.  Although the report was completed in April 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic introduced delays into the review process as we suspect, did the delays in the decision on the A303 Stonehenge to Berwick Down scheme.

If you travel across the WHS, work in it, visit it for leisure, or have interests in the tourism industry, then we would suggest you dip into the report.  Once we have access to the appendices, we will also make those available.   You can find a copy of the report here.
