Faculty Public Notice
Because the Bell Tower is an ecclesiastical building (dating from when it was part of Evesham Abbey), any work on it is subject to approval by the Chancellor of the Diocese of Worcester, Dr Charles Mynors FRTPI FRICS IHBC Barrister. Part of the process to obtain approval (along with detailed specifications, schedules, plans, etc.) was the display of a public notice.
The notice states: “NOTICE IS GIVEN that we are applying to the Consistory Court of the diocese for permission to carry out the following: Repairs to and cleaning of the stonework of the detached Bell Tower”
Objections had to be received not later than 18th October 2014. We were pleased that no objections were received, and permission was granted. This meant that, with the funding and key people in place, we could start on the Delivery Phase.
