The Diocesan Advisory Committee (DAC) advises on applications for faculties and List B works. They meet every other month to discuss major schemes of work. We encourage you to use our online application system.

Please contact the DAC team at an early stage, especially if you are considering a major project.

Further advice and information about the DAC and the faculty application system can be found below.



The DAC team are temporarily understaffed.

So that Liz and Sophie can continue to provide the highest level of service during this period we will only process a number of cases at any one time. This means that any new submissions which are not urgent works will be placed in a queue and will be reviewed systematically as other cases are finished. Please do still contact us at an early stage, especially if planning a reordering scheme or installing new facilities, we will continue to provide pre-application advice.

If you have an emergency, such as something causing a risk to health and safety, please do call Liz Kitch on 01865 208229.

In order for the team to process casework as swiftly as possible we will not be able to answer general enquiries as promptly as usual.

Please do review the FAQs and guidance on the DAC webpage – this contains lots of helpful information and may provide the answer to your query. Please be aware that if the answer to your query is available on our webpage we may not respond to your email. If you cannot find the advice you need please do contact us.

Thank you for bearing with us at this time.
