Blaenavon Industrial Landscape World Heritage Site

Closed 24 May 2018

Opened 12 Apr 2018


Residents and other stakeholders are being asked to comment on a draft plan that will guide the management of the Blaenavon Industrial Landscape World Heritage Site until 2023.

Why We Are Consulting

The Blaenavon Industrial Landscape was inscribed by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) as a World Heritage Site in December 2000.  

Each World Heritage Site is required to have a management plan behind it that specifies how the Outstanding Universal Value of a site should be preserved.

The draft plan aims to ensure that the site is managed in a way that contributes to economic, social, environmental, cultural well-being, and sustainable development goals.

In addition to the online consultation, public sessions will take place at the Blaenavon World Heritage Centre on Tuesday 24 April from 3:30pm – 7pm, and Llanfoist Village Hall on Thursday 26 April from 3:30pm – 7pm.

Anyone wishing to speak Welsh at these events should contact Rebecca Hartley on 01633 648293 a minimum of three days before the event. 

Paper reference copies of the consultation documents will be available at the council’s Ty Blaen Torfaen Office, Panteg Way, New Inn, Pontypool on weekdays between 9.00am -1.00pm, Blaenavon World Heritage Centre, Church Road, Blaenavon between Tuesday – Sunday 10:00am – 5:00pm, and at the Civic Centre Pontypool, Glantorfaen Road, Pontypool weekdays between 9:00am – 5:00pm.
