‘House care handbook for clergy’
The handbook has been revised to include the new policy on tree maintenance, tv aerials, emergency work etc. The document should help improve the understanding of the service provided by the Property and Development Department for clergy and the responsibilities of maintaining and living in a parsonage for all parties. The document highlights the key areas encountered during occupation e.g. Quinquennials, decorations, repairs etc. and summaries in the appendix the repair responsibilities to improve clarity of the works undertaken by the department.
