Proposals affecting the closed church of  Stanmer in the diocese of Chichester.

The draft Scheme provides for Commissioners to sell the closed church and churchyard for cultural, social and community purposes and occasional Christian worship.

This consultation has now closed. As objections were received to the proposals, the case will be considered at the meeting of the Commissioners' Mission, Pastoral & Church Property Committee due to be held on 24th May 2023 in private session. The committee paperwork can be found below, and the decision and a full statement of reasons for that decision will be posted on this page in due course after the meeting. 

Post 24 May meeting note:

The Commissioners decided matter to proceed notwithstanding the representation against, but the accompanying plan to be amended to exclude the Donkey Wheel House from the disposal.

Our fuller written decision to follow hopefully by the end of June 2023.
