The Stonehenge, Avebury and Associated Sites World Heritage Site Management Plan 2015 was launched on 18 May 2015. This is the first joint Stonehenge and Avebury WHS Management Plan and replaces the Avebury WHS Management Plan 2005 and the Stonehenge WHS Management Plan 2009.  It has been compiled by Sarah Simmonds (Avebury WHS Officer) and Beth Thomas (Stonehenge WHS Coordinator) of the Stonehenge and Avebury WHS Coordination Unit based at the Wiltshire and Swindon History Centre in Chippenham.

Front cover of Stonehenge and Avebury WHS Management Plan 2015  The Plan was developed following a review of both Management Plans in 2012 and 2013.  The review was completed by holding stakeholder workshops, drop in public consultation sessions, professional focus groups and posting a web-based questionnaire.

A full public consultation took place on the draft Stonehenge and Avebury WHS Management Plan between 8 December 2014 and 1 March 2015.

On this page you can download the full version as one document in low resolution and individual sections in high resolution below.  There is also a 16 page summary document which can be downloaded here.

The Plan is expected to cover the period 2015 – 2021.  There are 8 aims, 61 policies and 178 actions all of which involve the many partners working in the WHS.

The WHS Coordination Unit is very grateful to the numerous colleagues and individuals who helped contribute to the development of the Management Plan and to Historic England and Wiltshire Council for funding its production.
