Church Property (Miscellaneous Provisions) measure PDF Print E-mail

Church property (e.g. Glebe land)

I took the following from the 'Blue Book'

It's the regulation showing that there is someone with the power to dedicate church / glebe land.  This would be necessary to show implied dedication, in a case of statutory or Common Law dedication (e.g. 20-years use)
