Minutes of the Cathedral Site Committee 1958
6th February 1958: A list of those present and apologies from those absent. After long and careful consideration the Chapter had come to the firm conclusion that the New Cathedral should be a Peculiar, without any immediate parochial responsibilities.
1st July 1958: A list of those present and apologies from those absent. The Provost reported that the motion passed at the last meeting of the Cathedral’s Council had been passed by the Church Assembly and a draft scheme for new Statutes had been prepared. Before the scheme went forward the Church Commissioners would require some guaranteed provision for the income of the Dean.
7th November 1958: A list of those present and apologies from those absent. The Provost placed into the Councils hands the draft of the New Cathedral’s Constitution which would come before the Church Assembly in November. The Bishop reminded the Council that if the Cathedral is to be consecrated in the summer of 1960 it is important that the Assembly completes its deliberations on the constitution at the February session. So after much discussion the constitution was endorsed.
8th December 1958: A list of those present and apologies from those absent. The amendments to the draft constitution and statutes were approved.
