Before a Faculty is granted, a Public Notice will be displayed for a continuous period of at least 28 days at the relevant 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.
