World Heritage Site

The Northern, mainly downland  and agricultural part of the parish lies within the Avebury half of the Stonehenge and Avebury World Heritage Site, the management of which is overseen by the Avebury World Heritage Site Steering Committee. This committee has representatives from organizations such as the National Trust, English Heritage and Wiltshire Council, and from the farming community, archaeologists, and others. Fyfield & West Overton PC also has a permanent seat (as does the PC of Avebury itself and that of Winterbourne Monkton, which also extends into the WHS), and a designated PC representative regularly attends its meetings. If anyone feels that there is some important issue affecting the parish which is likely to be within the remit of the WHS, he or she is welcome to bring it to the attention of the Parish Clerk, for onward transmission.
