The formal application to the Listed Buildings Advisory Committee went off today, including a full 25 copies on CD ROM! The next stage is the 28 day public consultation period, which they will kick off as soon as they process our application.
It is only to be expected that we will receive objections from some of the amenity societies. The final decision will be made after balancing the historical significance of the building against the needs of the church. The Baptist Union have to show that they have listened to and considered all objections, but in the end they have the final say. Please keep on praying that our application will be successful.
