Cathedral Council is an advisory body whose members have wide ranging local and regional interests and bring immense knowledge from both within and outside the Church of England. Its primary functions are to provide Chapter with objective, critical, constructive advice and to scrutinise Chapter’s activities.
Council can instruct Chapter to report on any area of the work that it wishes to scrutinise and as the Minster’s constitutional ‘watchdog’, Council has the power to report on matters of concern to the Archbishop (as the Minster’s ‘Visitor’) and to the Church Commissioners.
