A new contact zone has been adopted, a draft of the Dubrovnik Walls Management Plan by the end of the year

first_imgAt the UNESCO session held in Manama, Bahrain, from June 24 to July 4, 2018, the World Heritage Committee adopted the extension of the contact zone proposed by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia.In accordance with the new guidelines, the decisions of the UNESCO World Heritage Committee on the state of conservation of Dubrovnik’s historic core were presented in Dubrovnik. A so-called buffer zone has been designated, in which all planned projects will have to be developed and a heritage impact study. The UNESCO mission emphasized that the guidelines and levels of protection should be revised through the buffer zone, which should be defined by the study of the impact on the cultural property, ie the HIA.”The recommendation of the UNESCO monitoring mission after the visit to Dubrovnik in November 2015, during which the possible expansion of the contact zone was discussed, was to cover a wider area and the original boundaries of coverage were indeed quite wide. “, said Assistant Minister of Culture of the Republic of Croatia Davor Trupković and added “Through a series of studies and analyzes, we have defined this zone, which deals with the visual impact on the city’s views, it has been reduced almost four times compared to the original proposal, which included even Mokošica. “Trupković said that the adoption of the new contact zone does not mean that it will not be possible to build in that area, ie that the reconstruction of existing buildings will not be allowed according to the valid spatial planning documentation. .He also said that complete 3D documentation of the walls will be made to remove all inappropriate restoration interventions from the 50s and 60s of the last century that are not in line with today’s conservative propositions. He also referred to the issue of the number of cruisers and the number of visitors, which was also discussed in Bahrain, saying that the Ministry of Culture informed the Committee that the Tourism Development Strategy and provisions in cruise tourism in the city of Dubrovnik have been completed and adopted by the City Council the 42nd session of the Committee itself.The Deputy Mayor of the City of Dubrovnik, Jelka Tepšić, on the recommendation of the Committee for the most urgent development of the Historic Core Management Plan, stated that the Draft Plan will be completed and presented by the end of 2018.The new buffer zone should help preserve the visual identity and control, while the conservation plan would prescribe clear measures for all investors. That UNESCO’s measures should be taken seriously is also confirmed by the example of Vienna, which, due to unplanned construction, was put on the list of endangered cultural assets by UNESCO, which is a big blow for one of the world’s capitals.You can read the report of the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia from the session of the Committee in Bahrain HERE.Attachment: 42nd session of the World Heritage CommitteeSource: HRT / City of Dubrovniklast_img read more
