Perihan Paksoy

Abstract


One of the UNESCO’s World Heritage assets Stonehenge carries a vital importance as it’s under the protection of this list and all land surrounding the monument is owned by conservation organizations. Stonehenge faced an issue of being referred to two different organizations with differing approaches to management as English Heritage owned the site itself and National Trust owned the surrounding download. Paksoy & Colakoglu (2009) investigated in their study about the site Stonehenge and has advised suggestions about its major management problems of the site. Stonehenge with its major management problems is one of the evident examples where the conflicts of the stakeholders can be monitored in an apparent way. With the different issues and its problematic locations and 2 different management styles, the problems encountered here were inspected by the researches to find out if measures have been taken since then. As there are a great number of visitors preferring Stonehenge and this number is increasing each year, the management couldn’t ignore to take urgent actions with the related problems. The researcher in this study analyzed whether their previous assumptions and propositions have been actualized in real measures.
