We haven't placed the Cultural landscapes enrolled this year yet into one of the following connections:
Associative Cultural Landscape
Continuing Cultural Landscape
Relict Cultural Landscapes

Most are not explicit, but my guess would be
-Champagne - Continuing
-Climats, terroirs of Burgundy - Continuing
-Diyarbakir Fortress and Hevsel Gardens - Continuing
-Fray Bentos - Relict
-Maymand - Continuing
-Par force hunting landscape - Relict?
-Singapore Botanic Gardens - Continuing

Any ideas?

Singapore botanic gardens is surely a clearly defined landscape.
The rest seem correct.

Thanks Assif, I forgot about the clearly defined. Could the Par force hunting landscape also be clearly defined?

For reference, from the UNESCO website:
The most easily identifiable is the clearly defined landscape designed and created intentionally by man. This embraces garden and parkland landscapes constructed for aesthetic reasons which are often (but not always) associated with religious or other monumental buildings and ensembles.

The second category is the organically evolved landscape. This results from an initial social, economic, administrative, and/or religious imperative and has developed its present form by association with and in response to its natural environment. Such landscapes reflect that process of evolution in their form and component features.

They fall into two sub-categories:
- a relict (or fossil) landscape is one in which an evolutionary process came to an end at some time in the past, either abruptly or over a period. Its significant distinguishing features are, however, still visible in material form.
- continuing landscape is one which retains an active social role in contemporary society closely associated with the traditional way of life, and in which the evolutionary process is still in progress. At the same time it exhibits significant material evidence of its evolution over time.

The final category is the associative cultural landscape. The inclusion of such landscapes on the World Heritage List is justifiable by virtue of the powerful religious, artistic or cultural associations of the natural element rather than material cultural evidence, which may be insignificant or even absent.

To answer my own question: the nomination document states clearly that it is. "To date no European cultural landscape has been included in the World Heritage List of Cultural Landscapes for its attributes as an intentionally planned and created hunting landscape"
