Extension to the Fitzwilliam Museum: Notice

24 July 2000

In their Report of 26 May 1997 on the construction of an extension to the Fitzwilliam Museum, the Council recommended that approval be given for the construction of a northern extension to the Museum and other works, including the infilling of the southern courtyard. These recommendations were approved following a ballot in July 1997 (Reporter, 1996-97, p. 1069). Subsequently, however, English Heritage opposed the plans for the northern extension; the Museum accordingly made a revised submission to the Heritage Lottery Fund for funding for the infilling of the southern courtyard only. The Council now wish to inform the University that the Heritage Lottery Fund have awarded a Development Grant of £302,000 to enable the University to proceed with developing the proposals for the infilling of the southern courtyard. The proposals will then be presented to the Heritage Lottery Fund with a request for a contribution towards the capital cost of the project which is now estimated to be £10.845m.
