Net Zero Carbon

The Church of England has set out its ambition for all parts of the Church to be 'net zero carbon' by 2023. 

To find out more about how your church can work towards net zero, visit the 'Net zero carbon church' pages on the Church of England website. There you will find the Practical Path to Net Zero, net zero webinars, case studies and other resources.

The path to net zero has many steps; some are things that you can just do, without needing permission, others will need a faculty (List B or a full faculty depending on the nature of the proposal).

The Faculty Jurisdiction Amendment Rules 2022 require churches to have due regard to the Church Buildings Council's (CBC) advice on net zero carbon for proposals where this applies. If permission is needed, please complete this template and submit it as part of your enquiry or as part of the supporting documents for your application.

For further advice and guidance contact the Church Buildings Team on or call 01905 732809.
