Letting one of Norwich Historic Churches

One of the main aims of the Trust is to find suitable alternative uses for the redundant churches.  Over the years the Trust has been quite successful in this area with the Puppet Theatre, Norwich Arts Centre, the Inspire Science Centre and recently a Martial Arts Centre in St Peter Parmentergate, to name but a few. See both the Case Study and Conversion sections for more information.

As a tenant you would be responsible for both the rent and insurance of the building.  The Trust always retains responsibility for the fabric of the churches.  Norwich City Council is responsible for the Church-yards.

The lease term will be arranged by negotiation.  Any alterations that might be required to the building will need both planning permission and Listed Building Consent.  In some instances permission for change of use will also be required.  The Trust will give advice and information on these procedures.

If you are interested in leasing a property, details of buildings potentially available can be obtained by contacting Roche Chartered Surveyors, who act as the Trust’s letting agents and are available to show people around the buildings and to offer further detailed information.  They are located in Thorpe Road, Norwich.
