Claire Strachan 28/09/17 HE Telecomms  Guidance Note – Telecommunications Equipment in Churches

Over the last few years the Church Buildings team have seen an increase in the number of PCCs considering installing transmitters and communication equipment in their churches after being approached by telecommunications companies. A number of churches in the Diocese have had successful installations but there can be implications for your church building. Historic England have recently produced a new guidance note on this subject to help and support churches who are considering this sort of installation. Please contact the Church Buildings Team if you would like to discuss this further.
