"UNESCO, the world's top cultural organisation is discussing whether development on Hayle harbour could see the town lose its coveted World Heritage Site status.
The United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organisation World Heritage meeting is being held this week (June 2014) in Doha, Qatar, to discuss sites which could be moved to the 'in danger' list, including the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape World Heritage Site.
The World Heritage Committee had called on the Government to halt the regeneration plans at South Quay last year to try and bring the development more in line with the site's historic character and limit adverse effect on the Outstanding Universal Value." source: The Cornishman, June 19, 2014
Quite frankly having seen the work in progress I agree, and who needs another supermarket (visible in the background in my picture)? Three other sites in danger are The Palace of Westminster, Liverpool's waterfront and the Giant's Causeway, Antrim due to commercial development. The UK's record on stewardship and planning hits an all time low.
