Yardley Soap Factory (UK) - Producing lavender soap to sit unsold in the massive rambling gifts shops of all the UK's former industrial factories that are now World Heritage Sites.

The Panelák fields of Bohemia & Moravia (CzR) - Dull, repetitive and low quality mass housing circling every Czech Historic centre.

All the meadows in Slovakia - (Amazingly this actually is a t-list site) - Perhaps trying to copy the already "inscribed" Great Plains of Molvania - "A site of significant monotony"

Hunting Landscapes of the British Royal Family (UK)

Please note that this is a transnational nomination with locations in
India/Kenya/Uganda - http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2878309/As-Prince-William-campaigns-save-enda ngered-species-relatives-different-approach.html
Germany - http://www.independent.co.uk/news/royals-shooting-passion-draws-bad-blood-1315283.htm l
Spain - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-26105706

I also "understand" that India is considering nominating "Dharavi - a User Generated city"
See http://www.planetizen.com/node/37545
This has the great advantage to India that the management plans can be very thin and that squatters and unplanned developments are a part of the OUV.
