Proposal to Vestry 2018

Revision of the Descriptive Document – February 2018
A thorough review of the DD has been undertaken to clear up inconsistencies within the document and bring it in line with current practice and changes that emanated from the adoption and implementation of recommendations in the Newby Report (May 2011). In addition wording, layout and formatting changes have also been made to generally “tidy up” the document.
The Revised Draft (Feb 2018) was been circulated to Church Pastorates for comment. The Parish Council approved the revised draft at their meeting on 23rd April and proposes to the Parish Vestry that the revised 2018 version be approved.
Parish Council asks that all queries and any further proposed changes must be submitted to the Parish Administrator, John McPetrie - by 19 May.
Some of the changes made are:
The inclusion of a “Definitions” section at the start of the document
Clarifying the role of the Parish Rector Team Leader and Parish Leadership Team
Clarifies the role and mandate of the Parish Council Executive (PCE)
Removal of gender exclusive language
