Public notices for faculties

The Diocesan Advisory Committee has issued advice to the Parochial Church Council of the Parishes listed below in respect of proposed works.

It is anticipated that these Parochial Church Councils will petition the Commissary Court of the Diocese of Canterbury for a Faculty to authorise these works.

Any interested party may seek further details at the Church. Before a Faculty is granted, a Public Notice will be displayed for a continuous period of at least 28 days at the Church. This notice will also state where detailed plans and specifications of the works may be viewed.

If you wish to object to the proposed works, please direct your written objection to the Diocesan Registrar, Diocesan Registry, Minerva House, 5 Montague Close, London SE1 9BB.

Objections must reach the Registrar on or before the deadline for submissions shown below, or the deadline stated on the exhibited public notice (whichever is the later).
