Broadfield House feasibility study
Thank you for taking the time to visit this site about plans for the future development of our museums’ service and most specifically Broadfield House Glass Museum.
There has been a lot of confusion about the future of the glass museum and I hope that I can now give some clarity to the situation.
The council fully recognises the importance of the collection housed at Broadfield and it is not our intention to either downgrade or move the collection out of the borough. Rather our aspiration is to develop an enhanced museum service by creating an improved visitor attraction based in the heart of the historic glass quarter.
The feasibility study will commence in the coming weeks and we have set up a dedicated section here on this website to enable you to keep up to date with the progress of the feasibility study. We will update the questions and answers’ section (below) in line with work being undertaken and there is also an email facility (e-mail Broadfield House) should you require any additional information which you cannot find on the site.
Attached below is a set of frequently asked questions for your information and I look forward to sharing the findings of the study with you shortly.
Director of the urban environment
