18CPower of chancellor to make further provision

(1)The chancellor of a diocese may by order provide that any matter specified in the order may be undertaken without a faculty (in addition to the matters that are prescribed by virtue of section 18B(1) above).

(2)An order under subsection (1) above—

(b)may specify such conditions as may be prescribed by virtue of section 18B(2) above;

(c)may apply to the whole or a specified part of the diocese.

(3)Where the chancellor of a diocese considers that there are special circumstances affecting a parish or church, churchyard or other building or place in the diocese which justify doing so, he may by order provide that a matter specified in the order may not be undertaken without a faculty even though it is a matter that is prescribed by virtue of section 18B(1) above.

(4)The chancellor of a diocese shall seek the advice of the advisory committee before making an order under subsection (1) or (3) above, unless he is satisfied that the matter is sufficiently urgent to justify the making of an order without obtaining the committee’s advice.
