Unanimous approval was given for the planning application at the Mole Valley Planning committee on 4th November 2020. The application is also supported by Heritage England, the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings and the Victorian Society, as well as the experts on the Diocesan Advisory Committee.
The PCC has now applied for a Faculty (like ecclesiastical planning permission) to build a toilet and tea point inside the church. The notice giving more information about the works, and where plans and drawings and other supporting papers can be inspected, is posted outside the church. The deadline for registering any objections is 16th December 2020, and the notice explains how this can be done.
As the church is now closed because of lockdown measures, the notice can also be viewed here: St Bartholomew’s Notice.
The planning application can be viewed on the link below.
