Notice is given that we are applying to the Consistory Court of the diocese for permission for like-for-like replacement of lead coverings to main and side chapel roofs with associated works of repair and adaptation.
With any major works of this type, due consideration must be given to the current climate emergency and carbon targets. As such, the development works have included a review of opportunities for additional sustainability measures, and feasibility studies into rainwater harvesting and photovoltaic installations have been undertaken. Whilst these remain under consideration and reference is made to them within the documentation, they are not included in the scope of the current Faculty consent application, which is for the repair works only. We ask therefore that comments be limited to the repairs. Should proposals for rainwater harvesting or photovoltaic installations be progressed, they would form a further Faculty application, and subject to comment in due course.
If you wish to object to any of the proposals (for repair works) you should send a letter or email stating the grounds of your objection to The Diocesan Registrar at the following address.
The Bishop of Ely's Registry
1 The Sanctuary
so that your letter reaches the registrar not later than 09/07/2022. A letter of objection must include your name and address and state the basis on which you have an interest in the matter.
