THE TAYLOR REVIEW: SUSTAINABILITY OF ENGLISH CHURCHES AND CATHEDRALS
Members may be interested to read OHCT’s response to the above Review, available here.
The following is the Summary of our response.
‘The OHCT warmly commends the review’s recommendations to the DCMS. We support the proposed pilots, but we urge the Department to give further careful thought to the resource and time needed to run meaningful pilots. We believe that it will be necessary to allow a longer period – significantly beyond 2020 – before the extent to which churches can achieve greater financial self-reliance can be established. Throughout that longer period, it will be necessary to keep overall central funding under review if this important part of the nation’s heritage is to be protected.’
