Building work to church premises: Some legal and regulatory issues

Church Growth Trust have partnered with Stewardship to produce a joint briefing paper addressing some of the legal and regulatory issues involved in church building work.

Any individual responsible for overseeing the logistics of a church will be required at some stage to make arrangements for building work such as the replacement of a handful of slipped slates or the erection of a new building.

Some church organisations will be able to consult construction professionals for basic advice and to avoid legal pitfalls. For others, they can refer to this paper as a guide to some of the legal and regulatory issues surrounding construction work today.

Topics covered:

  • Planning permission
  • Building regulations approval
  • The Party Wall etc. Act 1996
  • The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 1994
  • VAT
