Current conservation issues
The State Party did not submit neither a state of conservation report nor copies of an adopted Management Plan, as requested by the World Heritage Committee at its 33rd session (Seville, 2009). Therefore the progress on the implementation of the decision is difficult to assess.
The World Heritage Centre and the Advisory Bodies further note that the state of conservation report submitted by the State Party in 2009 did also not provide information on progress made on the development of the management plan for the site, as requested by the World Heritage Committee at its 31st session (Christchurch, 2007), although it did address other issues, notably conservation work carried out on individual buildings of the site.
The World Heritage Centre and the Advisory Bodies are concerned about the lack of information provided by the State Party and the lack of progress in meeting the requirement of the World Heritage Committee at the time of inscription of the property on the World Heritage List.
