National Amenity Societies

In addition to English Heritage, there are a number of other bodies with expertise and interest in church buildings and their heritage.

Where certain works are proposed to a listed church, the appropriate National Amenity Society will need to be consulted, and their response should be submitted with the faculty application papers to the DAC. Note that several Societies may have an interest, e.g. where a mediaeval church contains Victorian fittings.

The process of consulting the appropriate National Amenity Societies or other consultees is done through the online faculty system, and parishes no longer need to do this themselves.  If you have any questions please contact a member of the team.
