WARDS AFFECTED: All
THE DECISION IS THAT:
a) The council provides an additional four years of funding to Hampshire Cultural Trust,
to support the operation of Milestones, Basing House and the Willis Museum and
Sainsbury’s Gallery until 2019/20.
b) Funding will be awarded on a decreasing basis, with a reduction of 2% per annum in
years one and two, followed by a further 10% in year three and a further 2% in year
four.
THE REASONS FOR THE DECISION ARE:
 In 2015/16 an initial grant of one year’s funding (£216,745) was provided whilst the
new trust was established. This enabled the borough council to review the trust’s
progress and performance before committing to a longer term funding agreement.

Since forming in November 2014, the Hampshire Cultural Trust has demonstrated
that it is performing well and has established a clear structure, strategic direction and
it is taking a pragmatic approach to income generation to address future funding
gaps.
THE OPTIONS CONSIDERED AND REJECTED ARE:
 Not to fund the Hampshire Cultural Trust
