LANCEWADPLAN : Integrated Landscape and Cultural Heritage Management and Development Plan for the Wadden Sea Region (LANCEWADPLAN)
Start date: Feb 26, 2004, End date: Jun 29, 2007 PROJECT  FINISHED 

LancewadPlan aimed to extend and enhance – in cooperation with the relevant governmental and non-governmental stakeholders – the development, management and sustainable use of the common trans-boundary landscape and cultural heritage of the Wadden Sea Region. Achievements: As the key result, the LancewadPlan project developed an integrated management and development plan and a joint strategy A Living Historic Landscape for the common landscape and cultural heritage in the Wadden Sea Region. Within pilot projects, the project achieved the application of cultural plans into regional planning and carried out regional implementation activities.As spatial planning was recognized by the project as the most important tool for the conservation and enhancement of cultural heritage and landscape values, regional cultural plans for the integration into planning were developed, in addition to the joint Wadden Sea plan. This included the description of 59 cultural entities, including the analysis of potentials and vulnerabilities, compiled in a cultural atlas. The synthesis of the regional plans provides an overview of the character of the cultural heritage of the Wadden Sea Region; it identifies the over-arching vulnerabilities and potentials and suggests some future directions where a character based approach to conservation and management might be progressed.Another final outcome in this context was an elaborated handbook of best practice, which has been produced to provide a summary of issues affecting the planning and management of the cultural heritage in the Wadden Sea Region, together with examples of projects which illustrate best practice within the region. The handbook provides a means for all parties involved in the management, preservation and enhancement of the cultural landscape of the Wadden Sea Region to learn from examples of projects which have been successful in practice.
