World Heritage Site Management Plan

The Management Plan Committee is at the heart of managing the World Heritage Site.  Meeting regularly throughout the year and holding an annual conference, the Committee brings together representatives of all organisations, bodies, businesses and communities with responsibilities and interests in the World Heritage Site.  The Committee is responsible for overseeing the preparation, monitoring, delivery and review of the World Heritage Site Management Plan.

World Heritage Site Management PlanThe Management Plan is the mechanism through which the WHS is effectively protected for present and future generations, and through which we can understand the history of the site and its use and values for the present and the future.

For further information, please contact John Scott – Management Plan Co-ordinator on +44 (0)1434 609700 or [email protected]

 Hadrian's Wall Interpretation Framework

The Hadrian’s Wall Interpretation Framework provides a structure to inspire and guide interpretation and audience development across the 150 miles of the World Heritage Site with its 12 managed sites and museums, hundreds of unmanaged locations and many businesses and information centres.   The Framework sets out a clear narrative structure within which each site and location can develop its own unique role in communicating the complex and fascinating story of Rome’s north west frontier.

Hadrian's Wall Interpretation FrameworkThe objective is to create inspiring, visitor focused interpretation across the whole WHS, inspiring visitors and motivating them to engage with and respect this outstanding heritage. The Framework is underpinned by extensive and innovative audience research that explores visitor motivations, expectations, interests and understanding and provides guidance on how to improve the visitor experience.
