Heritage business planning consultants – Pleasley Pit, Pleasley, Derbyshire

Client: Emda
Working as heritage business planning consultants in a multi-disciplinary team, PSCL was commissioned  to carry out a feasibility study for the regeneration of Pleasley Colliery, a Schedule Ancient Monument.

We were subsequently commissioned to prepare a business plan  and wider heritage masterplan for the site.  We also identify potential management and governance options to ensure that the project could be delivered. This included producing a draft Audience Development Plan for this important heritage resource (which has recently received the English Heritage Angel award).

The purpose of our study was to formulate a masterplan and development strategy for the disused colliery which would see the heritage asset restored in a sympathetic manner to realise the ambitions of a Friends Group, the local community and visitors. The development strategy identified ways to improve access, introduce interpretation and revenue generating opportunities. We also advised on marketing and funding opportunities.
