Please note: Submission by the agenda close does not ensure inclusion on the next agenda. Cases will only be placed on the agenda if all necessary documentation is available. Not all cases need to go to the full committee - your caseworker will let you know.
Please contact the DAC team as early as possible in the planning of your project to be advised of the timeline of obtaining permission.
Here you can find the minutes of recent DAC meetings at which faculty casework is discussed.
Please note, if your application relates to an instance of metal theft, valuable and vulnerable artefacts, or roof recovering, you will not find it in these publicly available minutes. Previous minutes are available on request at firstname.lastname@example.org.
