Conservation issues presented to the World Heritage Committee in 2005

In the framework of the Periodic Reporting exercise, the State Party informed that the situation of the area of the Pointe-à-Carcy has remained unchanged since the previous session of the Committee.  After having taken into account the recommendations concerning the project of a cruise ship terminal at Pointe-à-Carcy made by the ICOMOS mission in 2001, the State Party put forward a proposal to extend the boundaries of the property.  Following a negative evaluation by ICOMOS, however, the State Party withdrew the proposed extension and decided to postpone any extension of the Historic District’s perimeter until a later date.  Furthermore, the State Party submitted a proposal for a statement of outstanding universal value for the property to be considered by the Committee.
