Conservation, Planning & Heritage Management

The Conservation, Planning and Heritage Management of Hadrian's Wall aims to protect and, where possible, enhance the significance of the Roman frontier.  This significance is set out in the Statement of Outstanding Universal Value (SOUV)

This Delivery Group's  remit is to seek to promote best practice in the management of the Hadrian’s Wall WHS by:

  • Providing a forum to share experience and lessons learned from both conservation and development-led projects

  • Disseminating the results of management works both within the professional heritage management and planning community and with the wider Wall community

  • Engaging with, and feeding into, the wider management of Hadrian’s Wall, including in the review of the WHS Management Plan, as appropriate
