Sorry :)

I am satisfied to see Hainan reappear.

Jingkieng jri: Living Root Bridge Cultural Landscapes
Perhaps the intangible list would be more appropriate, like the Inca bridge in Peru.

New one from Mozambique: Maputo National Park (formerly Ponto d' Ouro Partial Marine Reserve - POPMR) (31/03/2022) -> an extension to the iSimangaliso Wetland Park in South Africa

-> renomination of Ponta de Ouro Protected Marine Area, which now has disappeared from the T List

Defensores del Chaco National Park (06/04/2022)

elsslots:
Médanos del Chaco National Park (06/04/2022)

Can't dive now into specifics, but both being quite big (>5.000 km2), in the Chaco and that area being naturally important and absent from the list (with dry forests being quite threatened worldwide), I think they both have the greatest potential from this list to (finally) become Paraguay's 2nd WHS. They eventually might be a single nomination, because both are adjacent, as it is shown here https://parquesnacionalesdelparaguay.blogspot.com/2012/07/mapa-de-las-areas-silvestres-protegidas.html?view=flipcard, but the 2nd park might have its OUV more attached to wetlands.

elsslots:
Jesuit Mission of San Cosme y San Damián (06/04/2022)

Most surely as an extension of the existing Trinidad de Paraná and Jesús de Tavarangüé site, even more so for being all 3 missions in the department of Itapúa.

elsslots:
Rock Art of Jsukaevnda and Cerro Corá (06/04/2022)

To this point, can't tell of the regional/global importance of these rock paintings, but (as a sidenote), Cerro Corá was also the site of the last battle of the Triple Alliance War. On the other hand, searching online under the name "Jsukaevnda", couldn't find anything.

Yes, I think it was a question of time.

With the new version of the page:

https://whc.unesco.org/en/tentativelists/

I find that it lacks, as before, the possibility of seeing the latest additions.

But a solution:

The team behind the Port Sunlight bid to get onto the UK T-List have been running some discussion sessions this week, so yesterday evening I drove over to understand their plans.

The bid looks to be popular locally, with the vast majority of residents they have talked to enthusiastic about the bid. From talking to the volunteers there I almost get the feeling that a World Heritage bid is seen as a means, rather than an end. Their key concern is to develop a sense of place and a shared ownership from the local community through their application; inscription would almost be a nice added bonus! They were very well set up to answer questions on the benefits of World Heritage to Port Sunlight (and why Liverpool's delisting won't impact their own bid). I felt they weren't quite as clear on why Port Sunlight deserves a place on the list. I expressed a view that 19th-20th century worker communities planned by philanthropic industrialists weren't in short supply on the List. In the UK alone that aspect comes into Derwent Valley Mills, New Lanark and of course Saltaire. This bid looks to be trying to distance itself from the purely philanthropic aspect and is likely to focus more on the 'design for living' aspect and the concept of the 'garden village' that aimed to edify its inhabitants through green open spaces, characterful architecture and access to culture (in this case the Lady Lever Art Gallery and Gladstone Theatre). Even so, some of that is already represented by locations like the Cité Bruno in Dourges (part of the Nord Pas-de-Calais Mining Basin) which explicitly modelled itself on Port Sunlight.

I was able to pick up information about the UK's T-List process. All sites on the current T-List (presumably apart from the Flow Country which is pencilled in for 2024?) have to re-apply to maintain their status. The UK is looking for a T-List of 10 sites only (pay heed Türkiye!), and is committed to nominating no more than one site for inscription every two years over the decade the new T-List will be in effect. Transnational nominations led by other nations do not count against this timetable, meaning that Gracehill (as part of a US-led Moravian Church Settlements site) and potentially Navan Fort (as part of an Irish-led Royal Sites of Ireland bid) would be extra to that.

Thirty sites have submitted an Expression of Interest, the first stage in the application process. They couldn't confirm all thirty to me, but they said that the group definitely contained:
Birkenhead Park
Sankey Viaduct
City of York
British Virgin Islands

a privately-owned site in Oxfordshire (? - cannot be Uffington White Horse as that is owned by National Trust. Potentially Upper Heyford airfield?)

The UK Government call for bids expressly called for applications from the British Overseas Territories, and so I would imagine that any bid from BVI (and St Helena / Turks and Caicos if they reapply) would be regarded favourably and potentially prioritised. I personally think the existing T-List sites of Chatham Dockyard and Iron Age Shetland look very strong so I would hope to see them retain their position.

Very interesting summary of the future development of the new UK Tentative List and the specific case of Port Sunlight.

I noticed that 3 of the sites that you mentioned are indeed in Merseyside (Port Sunlight, Birkenhead Park and Sankey Viaduct) and correspond to a timeframe (19th century) from which part of the OUV of Liverpool came from, although of course with a verydifferent flavor: I consider the first public park in the West and the revolutionary early 19th century viaduct are indeed very outstanding and that the planned town, using the thematic angle that you mentioned, could arguehaving OUV.

It would be interesting to see sometime Ebenezer Howard's Letchworth and Welwyn garden cities, extremely influential in the history of urban planning, go for a TListing at least.
I also see there may be an angle for postwar Modern Movement Sites in the UK, like the Barbican (although criticised, it was very revolutionary, vast, influential and for the most part, succesful), Ralph Erskine's Newcastle Byker Wall (portraying a break with the brutalist and functionalist social housing of previous decades, experimenting approaches that have reverberated in the following decades, towards more community-oriented housing) and James Stirling's Leicester Engineering Building, Cambridge History Faculty and St. Andrews Andrew Melville Hall.

(and St Helena / Turks and Caicos if they reapply)[/quote]
Liam:
British Virgin Islands

Of course, sites in overseas dependencies, colonies and associated territories have provided a rich field for inscriptions for countries as France, the US, Australia, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Denmark and the UK and I think they help (even when located mostly in some countries with a high number of WHS) to expand the distribution of WHS around the world. I personally don't even count oversea territories sites that are outside of Europe, as "European sites" as UNESCO does.

Liam:
City of York

As I said sometime before, very much in favor of it, even when being in a crowded and highly represented field of already inscribed European sites. I think (as it was the case with Albi and the Mantua component of Mantua & Sabbioneta, in this category), it just stands from the crowd.

Would like to see sometime Oxford and Cambridge sometime vye for a listing.

Thanks for that update Liam, I had missed this post previously
Liam:
a privately-owned site in Oxfordshire (? - cannot be Uffington White Horse as that is owned by National Trust. Potentially Upper Heyford airfield?)

What is it with Oxfordshire and privatly owned WHS (Blenheim is as well).

I wonder if it may be Kelmscott Manor?
It has just re-opened after a major renovation, is owned by the London Society of Antiquetes and would certainly be a very prominent location to hang an Arts and Crafts nomination off of.
I would be very interested if it was as I think the Arts and Crafts movement has real potential for some kind of inscription.

Many thanks for the kind words. Despite Birkenhead Park, Port Sunlight and Sankey Viaduct sitting within a 45 minute drive of my house, I remain to be convinced. I'd say the viaduct is the weakest of the three - yes, it's the first major passenger rail bridge, but it is essentially a less-impressive Pontcysyllte Aqueduct but with rails on top rather than a water trough. I'd prefer a wider listing of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway - partially because I travel on part of the route into and out of work each day - but I'm afraid the authenticity is largely gone. The viaduct, the Huskisson Monument just east of Newton-le-Willows station (built to commemorate a former Cabinet Minister who was run over and killed by George Stephenson's Rocket on the opening day of the line), potentially some of the 'floating' track across the Chat Moss peat bog, and the railhead and 1830 Warehouse at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester are all that remains really. Still, I suppose is that any worse than the Trans-Iranian?

I'm on record as saying I think a (hopefully transnational but in any case British-led) nomination for Brutalist architecture has scope - the Barbican, Preston Bus Station, and the Lasdun Building of Christ's College, Cambridge (rather than the History Faculty).

meltwaterfalls - you can really see the Arts and Crafts influence in Port Sunlight actually. Hmm, I'm now thinking more favourably about it...

Ireland to shortly update it's tentative list with the neolithic sites in Sligo, the transnational cable site in Kerry and expanding the royal sites to take in a transnational element. Three of the potential sites didn't make it onto the tentative list.
