What a management plan should include

All written plans for heritage protection should include:

  • an identification of the key people interested and the sources of information
  • a statement of the significant heritage values of the place
  • an identification of the key issues affecting the future of the place or places
  • objectives
  • guidance on what future actions will be done or are appropriate considering the significance of the place or places
  • a list of people responsible for carrying out actions of the plan
  • how the protection of the place itself will be monitored and reviewed
  • a process and timing for reviewing and updating the plan
