St Andrew's Church Development Appeal - August 2017 Update

Update On The Development Project

On 30th May 2017 the Chancellor of the Diocese of Salisbury granted St Andrew’s Church PCC a Faculty for the Development Project at St Andrew’s Church, approving all the proposals set out by the PCC in its Petition to the Chancellor.

This brings to a conclusion the lengthy process that began in May 2016 when the PCC submitted the final plans for the Development Project to the Diocesan Advisory Committee. The DAC approved the plans without alteration in December 2016, which meant that the PCC was then free to petition the Chancellor for a Faculty. The Petition was lodged in January 2017.

We have now completed the planning and approval stages of the Development Project; another milestone which moves St Andrew’s Church ever closer to completing the Development Project.

Fundraising Update

Once the Faculty had been granted the Friends Committee was free to make applications to Trusts and Foundations that require a Faculty to be in place before those Trusts and Foundations will consider an application for a grant. The Friends Committee began writing those applications in early June with a view to them all being completed and submitted by the end of July.

Forthcoming Fundraising Events And Activities

The programme of fundraising and social events will continue from October 2017.
