Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)
The Churches Conservation Trust has as its object the preservation, in the interests of the nation and the Church of England, of churches and parts of churches of historic and archaeological interest or architectural quality, together with their contents, which are vested in the Fund by Part III of the Pastoral Measure 1983 (1983 No. 1). The Pastoral Measure was amended by the Pastoral (Amendment) Measure 1994 which, inter alia, changed the name of the Redundant Churches Fund to the Churches Conservation Trust.
This order specifies the period 1st April 1997 to 31st March 2000 for the purposes of section 1 of the Redundant Churches and other Religious Buildings Act 1969, thus enabling the Secretary of State with the approval of the Treasury to make grants to the Churches Conservation Trust during that period of such amounts, payable at such times and subject to such conditions, if any, as she may from time to time determine. The Order specifies the sum of £7,440,000 as the maximum aggregate amount of the grants that may be paid over that period.
