Overview of the programme

The image below provides an overview of how the abbey site might be laid out at the end of the Conservation Project. Please note: there is no funding in place yet for the gardens on the abbey grounds:

The current focus is on the conservation project which will enable and inform the later projects. The programme has been structured as a series of separate projects for the following reasons:

  • To better manage and mitigate any risks;
  • To allow close management of key dependencies between pieces of work; ensuring the results of earlier projects are properly considered and then used to inform subsequent projects; and
  • To enable the trust to establish a track record of delivering projects, in order to gain credibility with key stakeholders and funding groups.
