Forming part of Arts Council England’s Transfer Programme, Paines Plough commissioned Achates to support it in the development of an Options Analysis to inform the decision as to its relocation, and to engage in Business Development support to consider the sustainability of the organisation as a result of any relocation.

Achates conducted a comprehensive analysis of each potential location, including consultation and mapping, to understand the opportunities each location presented. Achates also reviewed working and financial models to consider the implications of any move. Using this, Achates made a recommendation which was presented to the Paines Plough Board as to the most appropriate option for its future location.
