Project Description

HLF Heritage Grant Round 2 Project Conceptualisation, Governance Options Appraisal, Business Plan and Activity Plan

Working with Sunderland City Council and English Heritage, Tricolor was responsible for creating the Vision Statement for this medieval castle, set within a wooded Dene, which is being redeveloped into the first youth-led heritage and skill-building attraction in the UK.

Our other work included the future governance Options Appraisal into spin out management structures (e.g. Community Interest Company vs Charitable Trust vs long-term outsourcing to management provider), a project Business Plan and 10 Year Business and Commercial Strategy, an Activity and Learning Plan and the Branding and Marketing Plan. All these strategies were developed in support of an HLF Round 2 application.
