This Order revokes and replaces the Ecclesiastical Exemption (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Order 1994 for Wales

This Order removes the listed buildings ecclesiastical exemption in the case of all ecclesiastical buildings other than for those cases falling within article 4. Under article 4 the exemption is retained in respect of church buildings of the Church in Wales, the Church of England, the Roman Catholic Church, the Methodist Church, the Baptist Union of Great Britain and the Baptist Union of Wales provided that the building in question’s primary use is as a place of worship and subject to the restrictions set out in that article.

A church building includes—

(a) any object or structure fixed to the church building;

(b) any object or structure within the curtilage of a church building which, although not fixed to that building, forms part of the land.

This Order also removes the conservation area consent ecclesiastical exemption from all ecclesiastical buildings.

(This is now the case whether or not that object or structure is listed in its own right.)
