The housing team are currently creating a new housing handbook, which will be available in the second half of 2021. This page may therefore not represent the most up-to-date information. For support, please email email@example.com
Improvements are not normally carried out between vacancies. Structural alterations will normally only be considered if the house falls short of the recommendations in the ‘Green Guide’ on clergy housing.
If occupiers feel that they have a particular acute need, they are advised to contact their Archdeacon in the first instance. Please note, in special cases the Archdeacon can sometimes suggest alternative sources of funding.
