The Forth Bridges Forum has been formed to promote the Forth bridges and ensure the local communities and other stakeholders remain at the heart of how they are managed.
The Forum set up a steering group to oversee the nomination of the Forth Bridge for World Heritage Site status, while a second steering group focusing on tourism is being considered.
The Forum and steering groups are committed to maintaining close links with local communities and other stakeholders with an interest in the Forth Bridges.
Forth Bridge World Heritage Nomination Steering Group
Working closely with local community groups, the Forth Bridges Forum has led the nomination bid to have the Forth Bridge inscribed as a World Heritage Site.
The Forum’s Forth Bridge World Heritage Steering Group oversaw the preparation of the application to UNESCO, highlighting the unique historical and engineering credentials of the world-renowned structure. The Steering Group includes representatives from North and South Queensferry District Councils, Queensferry Ambition and the North Queensferry Heritage Trust.
On Sunday July 5 2015, the Forth Bridge was successfully inscribed as Scotland’s sixth World Heritage site. Read more about the Forth Bridge World Heritage site here.
