Shambellie House Trust (https://www.shambelliehouse.org/) has commissioned DC Research to carry out an Economic Impact Assessment of the Shambellie House Project – assessing the potential impact that the development and delivery of the project will have on the economy of Dumfries and Galloway.
The objectives of the Trust are:
- To arrange for the buildings and grounds to be used for the advancement of arts, heritage and culture. Providing facilities for the arts and providing heritage benefit to the community by preserving the listed building of Shambellie House (including any outbuildings or associated buildings and grounds).
- To arrange for the buildings and grounds to be used for the advancement of education, in particular arts, culture and the environment.
The Economic Impact study will involve a range of desk based research tasks, as well as consultations with Trustees and a sample of the tutors that will be involved in the delivery of courses, alongside a survey of local businesses to assess the wider impacts of the project.
