Title : Future of Stonehenge : public consultation

Description :
The Future of Stonehenge website gives information about the public consultation that took place in October 2008 to discuss improvements that could be made to this World Heritage Site. A visitor to the website can find out more about Stonehenge, and download pdf documents of the public consultation booklet and the management plans. The proposals cover environmental improvements around the stones and new visitor facilities. Because the consultation booklet was designed to make the issues about making improvements to Stonehenge clear to everybody, it is a good starting point for anybody wishing to learn more about works to World Heritage Sites - the level of sensitivity required and the complications that come with having to meet the criteria of various institutions, whilst spending within the budget taken from public funds. The booklet discusses how the public will be able to use the site in the future, changes to the road system near to the site, and possible locations for the new visitor centre. The report contains many beautiful aerial photographs.
