The National Heritage Board and the National Parks Board are seeking public feedback ahead of their bid to make 154-year-old Singapore Botanic Gardens a Unesco World Heritage Site.
They are holding a public consultation from Wednesday to December on two documents that will be submitted for the nomination. The first is a nomination document which provides information on how the Botanics fulfils Unesco's inscription criteria. The second document is a site management plan which proposes how the Botanics will be managed if successfully inscribed.
The public may view these documents and give their feedback on www.sbg.org.sg/unesco/. The nomination document is also available at the Botanics' visitor information centres. Feedback will be collected in two stages.
Both documents will be submitted to Unesco by Feb 1 next year. The World Heritage Committee will then decide whether to grant the Botanics World Heritage Site status.
