Strongly urges the State Party to immediately revise both the “Specific Guidelines” and any relevant land use plans and development control regulations to ensure that development is strictly circumscribed in order to avoid any deterioration of the property’s integrity, including in relation to aesthetic values. The draft planning and development control documents prepared to this end should be communicated to the World Heritage Centre prior to being formally adopted;
Urges the State Party to carry out a comprehensive regional development and public use planning process focusing on achieving a consensual multi-stakeholder vision on conservation and economic development, with specific regard to the property’s Outstanding Universal Value;
Decides, in conformity with Paragraphs 177 and 179 of the Operational Guidelines, to inscribe Pitons Management Area (Saint Lucia) on the List of World Heritage in Danger;
Requests the State Party, in consultation with the World Heritage Centre and IUCN, to develop corrective measures and a proposal for the Desired state of conservation for the removal of the property from the list of World Heritage in Danger, for examination by the World Heritage Committee at its 35th session in 2011.
Also requests the State Party to submit to the World Heritage Centre, by 1 February 2011, a report on the state of conservation of the property, focusing specifically on progress in halting existing development permits within the property and establishing an effective development control system, for examination by the World Heritage Committee at its 35th session in 2011, with a view to considering, in the event of continuing inappropriate development within the property, the deletion of the property from the World Heritage List.
