Chairman needed for Stonehenge panel
A NEW partnership panel set up to coordinate cooperation between the Stonehenge and Avebury is looking for a chairman.
Following a recent review it is hoped managers of the two parts of the World Heritage Site (WHS) will be working more closely together and it has been decided there will be a partnership panel led by an independent chairman.
This panel will also act as a representative for the whole WHS. It will be made up of the three key partners - English Heritage the National Trust and Wiltshire Council - together with the chairmen of the local Stonehenge and Avebury steering committees and a representative from the research community.
The chairman’s role is a voluntary fixed-term position for three years. The person will champion Stonehenge and Avebury’s World Heritage status and will need to dedicate about two days a month to the role in order to carry it out effectively.
Wiltshire Council cabinet member for heritage and arts Stuart Wheeler said: “This will be a really important and exciting role for someone to take on. This iconic World Heritage Site is an integral part of Wiltshire’s identity and attracts over a million visitors each year from all over the world.
“The new panel and chair will play a key role in ensuring this continues and that new opportunities to protect and present the World Heritage Site are identified.”
