Clergy Housing



The Department

The housing portfolio is managed by the Property and Development Department and overseen by the Resources Committee. The aims of the department are:

  • To strive to provide the highest quality housing services for all occupants within the bounds of its resources.
  • To obtain the best value for money for those who fund these services.
  • To examine ways of making the most efficient and appropriate use of the Diocese’s property assets.
  • To maintain the highest levels of professional integrity.



During these uncertain times we will endeavour to maintain our property management service in line with the UK Governments recommendations in order to manage any risk from this virus. A document has been prepared and updated to outline how the department will be operating and the responsibilities of all parties. Please click on the link below for more information.

NEW ‘House care handbook for clergy’

The handbook has been revised to  include the new policy on tree maintenance. The document should help  improve the understanding of the service provided by the Property and Development Department for clergy and the responsibilities of maintaining and living in a parsonage for all parties. The document highlights the key areas encountered during occupation e.g. Quinquennials, decorations, repairs etc. and summaries in the appendix the repair responsibilities to improve clarity of the works undertaken by the department.
