BATH ABBEY FOOTPRINT BUSINESS PLAN

Bath Abbey

In 2014, Bath Abbey received a first round pass from Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for the Bath Abbey Footprint project.  This £19.3m project restores the collapsing floor of the Abbey, creates an interpretive exhibition and new multi-use spaces that support the Abbey’s activities, and provides for the first time public toilets within the Abbey.  The project also improves the visitor circulation and the visitor experience overall. Jura Consultants was appointed to write the detailed Business Plan for the Second Round application to HLF, following HLF’s guidelines and meeting its requirements.  We worked as part of a multi-disciplinary team, supporting the client in further testing aspirations and determining the details of the project during its Development Phase. We provided a full financial assessment of the impact of the Abbey’s partial closure during project delivery on income and produced revenue budgets for the six years after project completion.
