    • Refurbish and bring back into use the West gate reconnecting the Churchyard with the centre of Moseley Village.
    • To conserve and restore the neglected Churchyard, historic features and original 1903 burial plan.
    • To improve biodiversity and habitat creation, enhancing the ecological value of the site.
