Chancellor George Osborne hails £1.8million for places of worship in the North West

IT has announced that 26 historic places of worship in the North West will benefit from a share of £1,751,500 to address urgent roof repairs through the 'Listed Places of Worship - Roof Repair Fund.' Places of worship across the region, from a variety of faiths and denominations, will now be made weather tight, safe and open for use. This money is part of a wider funding package, of £22.9million, to 401 historic places of worship across the UK, that has just been announced.

Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne said:- “Churches and cathedrals are a pillar of British life and we are committed to ensuring future generations will be able to admire and use these historic buildings. Thanks to the work we’ve done over the last 6 years to secure Britain’s long term economic security, we are able to support the upkeep and repair of places of worship across the UK.”

Heritage Minister Tracey Crouch said:- “Churches and cathedrals are the jewel in the crown of our national heritage and it is vital they remain in good repair and are accessible for all. These buildings are at the heart of communities across the country and I am delighted so many will benefit from this important fund.”

The historic places of worship will receive between £10,000 to £100,000 to meet the costs of urgent repairs to roofs and rainwater disposal systems. Money is also being provided for structural investigations; specialist reports and bat surveys. 

Sir Tony Baldry, Chair of the Church Buildings Council:- “It is fantastic that a further 400 church buildings will receive significant help with roof repairs from government and we are hugely grateful to the Chancellor. We now need to ensure a sustainable way of funding church buildings in the future and this is a question for which I hope the Department for Culture Media and Sport Taskforce on Church Buildings will find viable and deliverable answers.”

The grants have been awarded through the Government funded:- 'Listed Places of Worship; Roof Repair Fund.' The fund was launched by the Chancellor in his Autumn Statement in December 2014 and the funding package has now seen a total of 903 places of worship.  Its worth mentioning that all those sites, across the UK, will now receive a share of £55 million.  We are told that the fund is administered by the National Heritage Memorial Fund (NHMF) on behalf of the Department for Culture Media and Sport (DCMS). The Government has also launched an English Churches and Cathedrals Sustainability Review to help put these buildings on a more sustainable financial footing. Chaired by Bernard Taylor, a panel of church and independent experts will develop tools and resources so the important heritage buildings can be maintained and protected for future generations. The 1st panel meeting will be held on Thursday, 7 July 2016, and is expected to report back in April 2017.   A full list of awards made in the North West can be found below. A full list of awards across the UK can be found at:- Gov.UK/DCMS or LPOWRoof.Org.UK.
