    Abstract

    World Heritage Sites are places of cultural and natural heritage of international importance which are considered as having outstanding universal value. The purpose of this dissertation is to establish whether the Management Plan for the World Heritage Sites in the United Kingdom fulfils its role as a practical tool for site management and conservation. The hypotheses listed below are tested using mixed methodology research: predominantly qualitative with some quantitative elements. The research is based on four case studies of World Heritage Sites in the UK, with 2 additional case studies presented as background information. The purpose of the World Heritage List was to provide a mechanism assuring that sites of universal value could be protected within a management framework and allow access to conservation funding. The conflict between conservation and tourism is a problem unique to each site. This research suggests that a good Management Plan provides an effective and balanced strategy to conserve and manage a World Heritage site. Six case studies revaluate the quality and implementation of the plans in practice.
