Tenders invited for Georgetown, Guyana

The National Trust of Guyana supports the commissioning of specialist conservation consultants by the Commonwealth Heritage Forum to prepare a Conservation and Development Management Plan for the area of Kingston and Cummingsburg within the historic core of Georgetown, Guyana. The completed plan and the processes used to develop and inform it are intended to serve as a pilot and catalyst for other areas within the city and will support the National Trust of Guyana and other national and local authorities in advancing urban development in Guyana. 

Georgetown, the capital of Guyana, situated on the northeast coast of South America at the mouth of the Demerara River, with its network of canals and bridges, lush tropical vegetation and distinctive buildings, has been described as both the Venice of the West Indies and the Garden City of the Caribbean. The surviving built heritage of the city is of outstanding international architectural and historical interest: it is a key economic, cultural and environmental asset for Guyana with huge potential as a catalyst for investment, sensitive high-value tourism and demonstration of sustainable development. Historically, that potential has been largely unrealised. However, the Government of Guyana and other key stakeholders are now seeking ways to change this situation.
