The role of the Partnership Panel is to coordinate actions affecting both parts of the WHS and to oversee the work of the Coordination Unit.

The group represents both parts of the WHS and is made up of the four key partners (English Heritage, Historic England, the National Trust and Wiltshire Council), the chairs of the two local steering committees and a representative from the Avebury and Stonehenge Archaeological and Historical Research Group.  The panel is led by an Independent Chair, a role currently held by Emma Sayer, and the secretariat is carried out by the WHS Coordination Unit.

An important role for this group is to ensure sufficient funds are available to support the Coordination Unit and implement projects arising from the Management Plan.The Partnership Panel first met in February 2014, and was formed following a review of the governance of the Stonehenge and Avebury WHS as one of a number of measures to bring the management of the site closer together.
