Westbury Manor Museum - Hampshire Solent Cultural Trust Proposals

Decision Maker: Executive

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

To consider the proposals from Hampshire County Council to transfer the management of Westbury Manor Museum to the newly established Hampshire Solent Cultural Trust.

 

Hampshire County Council, Southampton City Council and Winchester City Council came together in January 2011 to investigate the opportunity for integrating their arts, museums and heritage services.

                 

The proposal going forward is that Hampshire County Council and Winchester City Council come together to create a Hampshire Solent Cultural Trust with the capacity to champion a bold vision and facilitate wider partnership working, while playing its part by delivering quality arts and museum services on behalf of Hampshire and Winchester residents.

There are implications for the Westbury Manor Museum under the new arrangements. Hampshire County Council is seeking agreement from Fareham Borough Council to enter into a 3 year funding agreement and lease for the Westbury Manor Museum. The details of these and other proposed changes are detailed in the report.

A further proposed outcome is for Hampshire County Council and Fareham Borough Council to develop a long term strategic vision for the integration of cultural facilities in the Borough of Fareham.

Decision:

That the Executive approves:

 

a)    a three year funding agreement between Fareham Borough Council and Hampshire County Council for the provision of the museum service in Westbury Manor from 1 April 2014;

 

b)    a 10% reduction in the Councils current level of financial contribution to the cost of the service which will result in a payment of £64,530 per annum for the duration of the three year agreement;

 

c)    that the Council continues loaning the bier hand cart to Hampshire County Council from the formation date of the Trust for not less than 25 years duration so that Hampshire County Council may, in turn, loan this item to the Trust; and

 

d)    that Hampshire County Council and Fareham Borough Council develop a strategic vision for the integration of cultural facilities in the Borough of Fareham.
