The Partnership will take a strategic approach to the sustainable conservation management of the heritage assets of the Abbey Precinct.  As part of this approach it commissioned Purcell to prepare a Conservation Plan which can be accessed here


The Plan

  • identifies threats to the significance of the site and its physical fabric.
  • makes recommendations for the protection, conservation and enhancement of the site and its heritage assets
  • provides a Conservation Framework to guide the Partnership’s decision making leading to sensitive and viable project planning.
  • considers actions and projects that the Heritage Partnership and its constituent partners could take forward to meet its vision for the site.

The Plan was funded by St Edmundsbury Borough Council and Historic England.
