The Places of Worship and Faith Related Community and Educational Uses document was prepared to ensure the needs of faith communities in Birmingham are adequately met. It is important that planning policies reflect the changing needs and demands of our growing population.
This document aims to give clear guidance for submitting planning applications to ensure a consistent approach to determining planning applications not only for places of worship but also faith-related community and educational uses. It was approved as a Supplementary Planning Document in May 2011.
The document also contains a checklist of things to consider and submit with any planning application involving places of worship (see appendix 3).
