New bid for Pavilion Gardens conservation.


BHCC are preparing to resubmit an application to the Heritage Lottery Fund for a grant to develop plans for the improvement and conservation of the Royal Pavilion Garden and get it removed from the Heritage at Risk Register.

Last year, following a consultation launched which attracted more than 1,300 responses, a bid was submitted for £194,000 to develop conservation plans ready for a funding bid for £3.3 million. Unfortunately, the bid was unsuccessful.

However, the Heritage Lottery Fund encouraged the council to re-submit, highlighting work that should be undertaken in the meantime.  This includes:

  • Carrying out an access audit
  • Developing designs of what a new boundary and improved entrances might look like
  • Providing evidence of how multi agency working will tackle anti-social behaviour
  • Providing more details of an activity programme, interpretation strategy and volunteer roles and skills.

The estimated cost of this work is £25,000 which would be met from the Royal Pavilion and Museums core budgets.
