UNESCO inscription and spatial planning

What approach should be adopted in order to take full account of Outstanding Universal Value? To answer this question, a range of expert viewpoints and sharing ideas in the field succeeded one another, with one meeting based on the municipality of Fontevraud-l’Abbaye’s experiences and Grand Saumurois’ SCoT, and the other on the City and Conurbation of Blois.

Objective for 2016: A Loire Valley World Heritage Resources portal

A project promoted by Mission Val de Loire, the Resources portal will be incorporated into the website and structured to facilitate meetings and networks of actors already set up by the Mission. 

It is designed as a tool serving local stakeholders

  • A tool for knowledge → facilitating mediation and interpretation of the territory
  • A tool for governance → accompanying action across the territory
  • A tool for work → accompanying day-to-day missions and practices

The workshop enabled collection of feedback from the portal’s future users to assist in its design. The note below gives an idea of progress made so far. If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact Mission Val de Loire on


Ligerian “Living at the Water’s Edge” Laboratory

The scheme’s partners presented the approaches taken and projects drafted in 7 municipalities by students in higher education institutions working alongside Loire Valley urban-planning agencies.
