I am hoping to get some advice regarding how to repair the damp area in the picture.

It appears as though the walls have been plastered down across the DPC causing it to be bridged, the plaster then extends down as far as the sub floor.

The sub floor is in places quite damp as there appears to not be any damp proof barrier.

The whole room will be replastered so the repair as such is not the problem but more how to ensure it does not return.

It seems as though the plastering was completed and then the floor slab installed, is this the correct order of construction?
