The draft plan for the future of Bermuda’s World Heritage Site at the East End is to be released this summer, the home affairs minister pledged today.

Walter Roban said: “The Bermuda World Heritage Site Management Committee, through the coordination of the Department of Planning, is working diligently to develop a consultation draft of the 2020-2025 Bermuda World Heritage Site Management Plan.”

He added: “Additional public consultation sessions are also planned once the consultation draft is released, following up an initial session held in St George’s in January.”

Mr Roban said that the World Heritage Site Management Plan is “a critical tool to maintain and utilise our Unesco World Heritage status”.

He added: “It’s important that our 2020-2025 plan for the World Heritage Site is co-created with the community.”

He was speaking ahead of World Heritage Day, which is marked tomorrow.

Mr Roban said: “Bermuda and other UK Unesco World Heritage Sites will mark the occasion by raising awareness of the Historic Town of St George and Related Fortifications and nearly 1,100 other World Heritage Sites of outstanding universal value to humanity.”

He added that the five-year review of the Bermuda World Heritage Site Management Plan “aims to ensure proper management” of the Olde Towne and fortifications.
