Parishes within the Diocese of Southwark needing to place a Public Notice on this page should e-mail details to the DAC Secretary.

This page was last updated on Monday 20 September.

The Diocesan Advisory Committee (DAC) has issued formal advice in respect of the proposed works detailed below. The applicants in each case will now petition the Consistory Court of the Diocese for a faculty to obtain permission to carry out works.

To comply with the Faculty Jurisdiction Rules and the requirements of the Chancellor of the Diocese during the COVID-19 pandemic, Public Notice of these applications will be displayed on the list shown on this web page, for no less than 28 days. At the same time, a Public Notice will be displayed for a continuous period of at least 28 days at the relevant church building.

Any interested person may seek further details of the application, including supporting documents (such as drawings and specifications) by consulting the Public Notices web page of the Online Faculty System and searching for a specific application or browsing through the list.

Please note that the Online Faculty System includes applications for many Dioceses within the Church of England; enquirers may wish to filter the list to search only for Southwark Diocese applications.

The list of Public Notices on this web page will usually be updated weekly.

The list of notices is divided into two parts, beginning with applications that relate to proposals deemed to fall under rule 9.9, principally for alterations (which may include demolition or extension) affecting listed church buildings.

If you wish to object to the proposed works for any of the applications, please direct your written objection to the Diocesan Registrar (by e-mail to [email protected] OR by post to Southwark Diocesan Registry, Minerva House, 5 Montague Close, London SE1 9BB).

Objections must reach the Registrar on or before the deadline stated on the Public Notice for that specific application as shown on the Online Faculty System. A letter (by e-mail or post) must include your name and address, and state whether you live in the parish and/or whether your name is entered on the church electoral roll of the parish or any other basis on which you seek to object.
