Herefordshire Museum Service

P+P has recently completed a strategic study for Herefordshire Council on the future resilience of its museum service. The work involved the development of a vision and delivery model for an incremental, low-risk, high-reward business plan aiming to ensure the long-term sustainability of the service by maximising access to the collections, considering future governance arrangements and developing across-the-board and long-lasting partnerships; all to support the work of the staff and to maximise the return from the Council’s earlier investments.

Sharjah Strategic Plan

P+P is working with Arup on the preparation of the Sharjah Strategic Plan - a comprehensive strategy for urban development and infrastructure projects in the Emirate. P+P has specific responsibility for Culture, Tourism and Identity. The project is being overseen and implemented by Sharjah Urban Planning Council.

Lancaster District Cultural Master Plan

P+P continues to advise Lancaster City Council, in line with its consultancy arrangements with the City since 2011, on the future of its museums service as a component of the City’s Cultural Master Plan. This involves advising on issues such as the museum collections, land holdings, archaeological resources and historic buildings as well as their governance, management and funding, all of which are aimed at producing sustainable ways forward for the City, its heritage and, above all, its people.
