EFDC’s Museum, Heritage and Culture service looks after the Community Arts Team, the Lowewood Museum and Waltham Abbey's District Museum, which is undergoing a £1.65m redevelopment and expansion programme. EFDC was awarded ACE’s Resilience Fund to undertake investigative work around the potential income generation and fundraising potential of the service.

Barker Langham developed a Trading Feasibility Study focusing on income generation supported by research and evidence, and a subsequent Trading Strategy maximising the assets of the museums and other activities of the service.

By following our recommendations, the service will be able to add value to its operating budgets and ensure an enhanced offer to residents and visitors.
