Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

23Amendment of proposals and preparation of draft scheme

(1)The Commissioners shall consider any proposals submitted to them under section 22(1) and the bishop, in consultation with the mission and pastoral committee, shall consider any comments made by the Commissioners with respect to any of the proposals.

(2)If the proposals provide, in the circumstances mentioned in section 58 or 59—

(a)for the demolition of the church to which the declaration relates, or

(b)for the church being put to a use involving architectural or structural changes to the church, or

(c)for the care and maintenance of the church by the Churches Conservation Trust,

the Commissioners shall consult the Church Buildings Council through its Statutory Advisory Committee.

(3)After the provisions of subsections (1) and (2) have been complied with the Commissioners may make, with the agreement of the bishop given after consultation with the mission and pastoral committee, such amendments to the proposals as appear to them desirable.

(4)The Commissioners shall prepare a draft scheme to give effect to the proposals, with any amendments made under subsection (3):

Provided that—

(i)the Commissioners may, with the agreement of the bishop, given after consultation with the mission and pastoral committee, decide to proceed with some but not all of the proposals, and in that case this subsection shall apply as if they were the only proposals;

(ii)if, as a result of the Commissioners’ decision under proviso (i), the proposals no longer contain a declaration of closure for regular public worship, the Commissioners shall refer the proposals to the mission and pastoral committee and the committee shall proceed as if the proposals related to a draft pastoral scheme which does not contain such a declaration or a draft order, as the case may be.
