This month we welcome 2 new colleagues to the Diocesan Advisory Committee (DAC) team.

A DAC Trio

Jenny Malekpour, Sarah Baines, and Dan Crooke

Based at Church House in Salisbury, Dan Crooke and Jenny Malekpour are the new assistants to Sarah Baines, our DAC Secretary.

Dan and Jenny have academic backgrounds in History and Building Conservation. This is Dan’s first role working with historic buildings, following a career-change from mechanics. Meanwhile, Jenny has joined us from a planning and heritage consultancy in London.

The DAC Office supports the work of our Diocesan Advisory Committee and can also advise parishes on a wide range of matters relating to the care and use of church buildings and the nature of permission required for work to be carried out.

The team also administers parish applications for the Archdeacon’s Written Approval under List B provisions and also the operation of the quinquennial inspection scheme, on behalf of the Archdeacons.

Working with the wider Diocesan Advisory Committee, Sarah, Dan and Jenny will be working hard to help parishes in this Diocese to manage the substantial caseload of changes to their church buildings, through the Online Faculty System.

Together, the trio are also developing plans for greater outreach to the parishes, aimed at helping you with the faculty application process. Keep a look out on the DAC web page for details of future workshops, surgeries, and the latest guidance.

In the meantime, if you would like to discuss a List B or Faculty application, please contact the DAC office on 01722 438654.
