English Heritage to IHCT: Alterations at St Nicholas

William Dodd writing to JS Hall. Condition of all EH grants that prior written approval required from English Heritage is obtained before work commences. Hence surprised to see ICHT giving approval without EH knowledge or permission. As grant aid had been given whilst the church was in use, removal of contents requires EH approval. Meryemana's interest in the church is welcomed but they cannot introduce irreversible changes. Comments on the four main areas affected: NE Vestry, S Porch, NE Chapel, Nave and Aisles. Lengthy comments on the nature of the pews and their proposed removal; requiring that temporary removal and storage be written into the lease; continues to discuss platform over the pews; outlines conditions covering: Redecoration, free standing fitments, ground/fabric disturbance, inventory (for repair and conservation purposes), specific points in pew cataloguing and management. Finally everything has to be reinstated when Meryemana leave the church. Then, EH will not object.

IHCT to Dr Heley: Pews; Dig; Lease; Keys

JS Hall - no objection in principal a dig in the church (need to discuss with Mr Hatcher); reluctant to have pews removed on a permanent basis. Dr Heley to write a short article on Meryemana for the Trust's newsletter? Mr Mellamphy should return keys (even those he may have had copied) to the Trust until the lease is completed.

Mr Mellamphy to Dr Heley: Plans acquisition; Estimates; Archaeologists

Ground plan drawings needed (according to Architect, Mr Hatcher) are subject to copyright and may be time consuming and expensive to obtain. Builders estimates depend on the plans being approved by IHCT and Borough Council. Defective flood lighting and fittings have been fixed - skateboarders still inflicting damage to the seating in the garden. Archaeologists to confirm dates for dig (need to place pews in storage)

Mellamphy, Robert Nicholas (1927-2016)

Suffolk CC to Ipswich Borough Council: Alterations at St Nicholas

Planning Dept (Keith Wade) writing to Ipswich Borough Council - no objections to the proposals but subject to an archaeological watching brief. If the floor level needs to be lowered then this must be done by archaeologists at the applicant's expense, normally. However, as the Meryemana Foundation is a charity and provided the operation is small then Suffolk is prepared to undertake the work at no cost to the applicants.
