The World Heritage Committee,

  1. Having examined Document WHC-15/39.COM/7B,
  2. Recalling Decision 37 COM 7B.102, adopted at its 37th session (Phnom Penh, 2013),
  3. Appreciates the efforts made by the State Party to strengthen the management and planning mechanisms for the Historic Centre of Lima and requests the State Party to finalize the approval process of the Master Plan and submit a critical review of it by the competent authority, as well as an assessment of the effectiveness of the proposed management arrangements for the property;
  4. Reiterates its concern regarding infrastructural interventions in the World Heritage area related to the High Capacity Segregated Corridor and also requests the State Party to undertake and submit Heritage Impact Assessments (HIAs) in the sections that could potentially impact the World Heritage property;

    2. visual simulations of the entire Cable Car Project route with visual cones projected from relevant points within the Historic Centre and from the Plaza de Toros de Acho, which is very near Tower 2.
