Capel Jerusalem is registered for Business Rates (instead of Council Tax), which are discounted in Wales. The bill for 2020/21 was reduced to £0, due to Coronavirus. Council Tax for Jerusalem Vestry is currently £2560.55 per annum. This has been paid up to the end of March 2021.
When we converted the chapel we were very aware of the importance of making the building viable and comfortable, with affordable overheads. Walls, floors and ceilings are super-insulated and the original windows have been restored and upgraded with slimline, argon filled double glazing.
Capel Jerusalem has a heat recovery/ventilation unit and underfloor heating throughout, which is heated by solar panels and an air source heat pump. The eco-friendly system qualifies for the Renewable Heat Incentive until November 2021. Until then, the new owner will receive quarterly payments from the Government of £431.46.
