Faculty fees and DAC meeting dates

Please click here for the DAC meeting and application deadline dates for 2018.

A DAC sub committee meeting is held between each main meeting to deal with small, straightforward applications which are received between deadline dates, or to deal with simple matters arising from the previous main meeting. Once your application has been received, you will be notified by one of the Church Buildings Advisers when it is to be considered by the committee.

Faculty fees are set nationally by General Synod and are paid to the Diocesan Registry. The current fee, as of 1st January 2018, is £253.

Once a faculty has been granted, should there need to be a change to any of the works approved, a faculty can in most cases be amended for a fee of £49 without a new application having to be made.

The Diocesan Registry are based at Michelmores solicitors in Exeter, and deal with the legal aspects of the faculty process, including issuing the permission itself. To contact them call Alan Barr, Registry Manager, on 01392 687421.
