ICOMOS-UK RESPONSE TO HIGHWAYS AGENCY CONSULTATION ON A303 PREFERRED ROUTE PROPOSALS IN RELATION TO THE STONEHENGE, AVEBURY AND ASSOCIATED SITES WORLD HERITAGE SITE, APRIL 2018

 
ICOMOS-UK plays a leading role in helping to implement the 1972 World Heritage Convention within the UK and promoting best practice in the management of UK World Heritage Sites (WHSs). Maintaining the Outstanding Universal Value (OUV) of the UK’s WHSs is a key objective.
 
The following sets out ICOMOS-UK’s response to Highways England’s formal consultation on its preferred route proposals for a 2.9km tunnel combined with dual carriageways in cuttings across the Stonehenge component of the Stonehenge, Avebury and Associated Sites World Heritage site.
 
ICOMOS-UK wishes to register a strong objection to these proposals in view of the substantial negative and irreversible impact we believe that the dual carriageways at both ends of the tunnel would have on the attributes of OUV of the WHS of Stonehenge, Avebury and Associated Sites.
