Consultants with proven track record appointed
Historic Bailey Hill in Mold was awarded an initial Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) development grant in July of £43,900 to enable detailed work on conservation, interpretation, activity planning and governance, to take place over the next year.
The Friends of Bailey Hill (FoBH) group and Mold Town Council (MTC), who have been involved in the HLF application, are delighted that Flintshire County Council has appointed Mold firm, Harrison Design and Development (HDD), to undertake all aspects of the development work with the help of specialists and volunteers.
In 2011 HDD produced the Bailey Hill Masterplan following public consultation. They have an unparalleled understanding of the opportunities and constraints of the site and how important the improvements are to the Town.
Once this development work is completed, a full application for just less than £1m will be made to HLF and, if this in turn is successful, the improvements outlined in the Bailey Hill Masterplan can go ahead. These include new access, paths and flower beds, interpretation of the historic features and the creation of a flexible, attractive event/activity space.
