Heritage Lottery Fund Project Update
This is an outline of our HLF Delivery Phase application. We have had invaluable help from specialist advisors in all areas.
We put forward a number of ideas at the various ‘consultation events’ carried out in the summer. Our current grant application contains some changes to those ideas; we have therefore also included the reasons for the major ones. These changes are a result of two main factors:
- The need to meet the HLF funding limit (£1,500,000)
- The feedback we had from the consultation process
The consultation process included:
- face-to-face meetings with individuals
- group meetings with a wide range of organisations (both within Clare and further afield)
This helped identify those matters which people felt to be particularly important. We also had to take account of what the HLF would consider to be appropriate for a ‘heritage’ project. We have had to cut back on some of the original plans. However we will be looking at ways we can still carry out most of them at a later date.
