LANCASTER DISTRICT MUSEUMS SERVICE
Lancaster City Council
In 2016, we were selected by Lancaster City Council to assess the options and outcomes for the redesign of its museums service. The work involved taking a strategic long-term view of the use of the District's cultural and heritage assets, estates and collections, their funding, investment and income, governance and management and producing a sustainable way forward in line with best practice. This included design proposals for a new collections centre and the redevelopment of the City Museum within the Grade II* Listed Old Town Hall. This appointment was a continuation of our consultancy work for the City, since 2011, to make the museums service a prime contributor to Lancaster's future economic growth and cultural wealth.
