Trinity to update capital plan following COVID19

Trinity to update capital plan following COVID19

A grant from Architectural Heritage Fund will mean we can carry out an updated feasibility study as part of ongoing phased renovation and conservation works.

Trinity has been awarded £45k from Architectural Heritage Fund to carry out an updated feasibility study as part of ongoing phased renovation and conservation works. This grant will cover associated specialist professional fees to adapt capital works plans in light of the impact of COVID19 on trading activity.

Trinity will commission a professional team of architects and specialists to update their 2012 study. This will be informed by the impact of the pandemic on the charity’s stakeholders and the music sector, which has traditionally generated revenue for the centre to subsidise a broad community programme.

Trinity will undertake an in-depth community consultation process so that the revised options appraisal can be informed by all relevant stakeholders, including local residents, artists and promoters, as well as heritage specialists.

The final feasibility study will lead to further redevelopment of the Trinity Centre so that it can continue to be a secure environment for a diverse range of cultural activities and events, which communities will need more than ever post-pandemic.

Matthew Mckeague, CEO, Architectural Heritage Fund, said:

“The COVID-19 crisis has brought unparalleled uncertainty to the heritage sector, with organisations that rely on visitor income or community group usage shuttered for most of the past year. However, these grants will support organisations in becoming more resilient as they emerge from the crisis.

“For forty-five years, the Architectural Heritage Fund has been committed to supporting communities to develop sustainable new uses for their much-loved historic buildings. We are pleased to have been able to offer this additional support at a time of extraordinary need and are very grateful to DCMS for funding these vital grants.”
