Have your say on future of heritage sites
A blueprint of how some of the Westcountry's most precious landscapes should be looked after in the future has been opened up for public scrutiny.
The Cornish Mining World Heritage Site Partnership Board has released its plan for how the vast area which covers iconic UNESCO sites in the county and West Devon should be managed.
Julian German, chairman of the partnership board, said it was important that everyone had their say.
"The UNESCO World Heritage Convention seeks to identify, protect and preserve the world's cultural and natural heritage considered to be of outstanding value to humanity," he said.
