Representations to the Committee

The Church Buildings (Uses & Disposals) Committee considers representations in respect of proposals for settling the future of churches closed for regular public worship.

The representation procedure is explained in the following note and flowchart.

Our leaflet Your Views Count explains how we will consider your representation and how you may be able, if you wish, to put your views to our Church Buildings (Uses & Disposals) Committee in person. It also explains the rules operating at Committee meetings where members of the public may be allowed to speak.

The Committee will be meeting on the following dates:

  • Wednesday 16 July 2014
  • Thursday 18 September 2014
  • Wednesday 15 October 2014
  • Wednesday 12 November 2014
  • Wednesday 17 December 2014

These dates are also available to download as a Word Document here.
