Last chance to comment on draft Master Plan

Posted By : Marie Thomas Wednesday 23rd December 2015

On Thursday 31 December the Cathedral’s draft Master Plan consultation ends and the process of reviewing and evaluating all of the feedback collected begins. 


Since April a series of Open Days have been held at the Chapter Office, one-to-one meetings have taken place with a wide range of stakeholders and information boards about the draft Master Plan have been displayed in the library to increase engagement and encourage feedback.The Cathedral and Chapter expect to have a report on the consultation by the spring.


The draft Master Plan consultation was launched at the end of July and is a starting point in the development of plans to improve the experience of visiting, studying and worshipping at the Cathedral for current and future generations. This has been made possible because the Major Repair programme, begun nearly 30 years ago, is in its final stages.


The online questionnaire will be available to complete until 31 December deadline. It seeks feedback on a range of plans and ideas including the development of the Works Yard in order to make the work of our skilled workmen and women more accessible to the general public, the improvement of our archive and library facilities so that some of our extraordinary books and documents can be shared more widely with the public and academics, and the creation of a song room and facilities for visiting choirs and musicians.
