Ashton Court Mansion
From this Spring, The Prince’s Foundation will lead a community consultation on the future of Ashton Court Mansion, bringing together groups with an active interest in the building as well a wider network of community organisations.
Bristol City Council has decided to establish a Partnership Board in order to identify a vision for the future and to work out how best to take forward implementation of that vision. Ashton Court Mansion will remain part of the City Council.
The only feasible solution for Ashton Court is the creation of a “not for profit” organisation, such as a charitable trust or social enterprise. Such an organisation would assume responsibility for the management of the Mansion, providing long-term focus and vision.
Bristol City Council has requested that the Civic Society host the Purcell report - 'Ashton Court - Towards A Sustainable Future'. The report is available in this post.
