a master plan

it has the purpose of tying goals and strategies that act on different levels in order to achieve a unified result.

Not a new set of constraints, or a superposition of choices and priorities.Quite a thread to support decision making for the implementation of the transformations of the territory
The Tourism Management Plan is drawn according to a uniform methodology (STeMA), shared and coordinated.
The Tourism Management Plan ensures an exchange of knowledge and virtuous practices that enhance the global ability of the cultural system.

The Tourism Management Plan should not be confused with the Development Program, with the measures or structural and/or promotion actions or with the tools for urban planning.
The Management Plan has its own autonomy and a procedure that aims to establish a model of development based on local culture but also for planning activities to meet the demands of UNESCO.
The spatial plans may be useful sources for the preparation of the Management Plan.The same planning instruments can be corrected and guided by the strategies of the Management Plan.

The Management Plan defines how to manage the cultural, historical and enviromental resources, and it is able to guide the choices of urban planning and economic cohesion by knowledge, active conservation and enhancement.

The document :

  • Provides infor on the state of the art of cultural heritage;
  • Identifies problems to be solved for the conservation and enhancement;
  • Select how to implement a system of actions, a policy of sustainable local development which systematically measures the results.
The Management Plan becomes a strategic tool that will try to identify the objeticves, in short and long term of conservation and enhancement, and the strategies and actions that aer put in action to achieve them. However the Tourism Management Plan does not have to be a centralized social planning, but rather a flexible set of operating rules, procedures and project ideas, involving a range of stakeholders and possess an “epigenetic” nature.They, the Plans, are able to envolve and to implement updates and changes with the change of circumstances and the evolution of the environment to which they are addressed.
