CONSERVATION MANAGEMENT PLAN - LLANTHONY SECUNDA PRIORY, GLOUCESTER
Commissioned by Llanthony Secunda Priory Trust (Private Client)
Following a £4.5 million major capital works restoration of a scheduled monument and seven Grade I and II listed buildings had been completed by Llanthony Secunda Priory Trust a revised Conservation Management Plan was required that reflected the change in direction of the Trust from rescuing bulldings to using and maintaining these assets.
This required a historical analysis and review of the assets significance, a review of historic maps and documentation to create a new conservation management plan, together with a review and creation of new policies moving forward. The final adopted document resulted in a Conservation Management Plan which will assist the Trust in managing the site.
