Top Tips for a Successful Chapel or Church Renovation
  1. Find out if the building is Listed
  2. Find out the established use, the local planning department may be able to help you. Alternatively, a council tax or business rates bill might be a clue
  3. Contact the previous owner if you can and see what they know
  4. Speak to the local diocese or equivalent organisation
  5. Consult with an archaeologist - there may be remains under the floor or in the grounds
  6. Are you eligible for funding? You may be able to get a grant for some of the cost of the renovation.
