RIPON CATHEDRAL

ACTIVITY PLAN AND BUSINESS PLAN FOR HLF

The Chapter of Ripon Cathedral

Prior to engaging Jura Consultants, Ripon Cathedral had been identifying and developing its strategy for the next ten years, and had developed an architect-led vision of the Cathedral precinct for the future. Jura Consultants were commissioned to develop a Business Plan and an Activity Plan to support an HLF Round 1 bid to progress this vision. We worked closely with Chapter in developing both the vision for the overall project and potential new areas of activity for the Cathedral, and assessed the potential impact both would have on financial resources and visitor number impact. This was supported by the outline Activity Plan, which was informed by analysis of 600 visitor and non-visitor surveys and workshops with staff and Chapter.
