Background

In 2007 a closure order was granted and the maintenance of the churchyard was transferred to DTC along with the expense associated with such a task. There was a 3 month window where it could have been passed to the District Council. However, WSC could have imposed a specific project charge on the Dulverton Town and Parish to support this maintenance requirement year by year, and their maintenance proposals were deemed unacceptable if the churchyard was to be maintained to a reasonable standard. Consequently DTC have a responsibility to maintain the churchyard and its walls (although still owned and insured by the church) in terms of Health and Safety, this includes grave stones, wall etc. DTC’s own insurance covers for 3rd Party risks.
