Have your say on future of Stonehenge
PEOPLE are being invited to have their say on plans to protect and enhance Stonehenge for the future.
The World Heritage Site is managed by a partnership of public bodies, landowners and residents who meet regularly to discuss the Stonehenge World Heritage Site Management Plan.
The plan sets out the main issues for the site and actions to protect and enhance its “outstanding universal value”.
The last management plan was produced in 2009, when it coincided with a complete review of the location of the Stonehenge visitor centre, scheduled to open later this year.
A number of drop-in sessions are being held for people to discuss the plans: at Durrington Library on October 23 from 2pm to 5pm; The Bowman Centre, Amesbury, on October 24 from 12noon to 3pm; Amesbury Library on October 24 from 4pm to 7pm; Shrewton Recreation Hall on October 29 from 10am to 1pm; and Salisbury Library on October 29 from 4pm to 7pm.
* A DRUID leader is calling for protests over ancient human remains being displayed at the new Stonehenge visitor centre when it opens in December.
King Arthur Pendragon is organising a protest outside Salisbury Library on October 29, as well as at the grand opening of the visitor centre on December 18.
Earlier this year, King Arthur failed in a legal battle to get ancient remains he calls The Guardians re-interred at Stonehenge.
“Since The Guardians were removed from Stonehenge in 2008 for analysis, we have mounted a campaign to raise awareness and gathered many signatures of support, calling for their return and re-interment at Stonehenge which we believe was and should have remained their final resting place,” he said.
