Abstract/Summary An important issues currently facing many complex industrial heritage sites is the integration of sustainable development into their planning and management processes. While UNESCO has recently affirmed that heritage is 'an instrument for the sustainable development of all societies, relatively little attention has been paid to the implications of this for heritage practice. This paper opens with an examination of the theoretical dimensions of sustainable development policy. Based on this understanding, the paper then aims to identify the extent to which the principles of sustainable devlopment are being applied at six industrial World Heritage sites in the UK. The research is founded on content analysis of management plans, and a thematic analysis of physical surveys and interviews. Ten issues facing the sustainable management of industrial heritage sites are identified. The paper concludes with the presentation of a management model that responds to the requirements for conservation as well as the sustainable use of industrial heritage sites.
