Uniquely, Christ Church Oxford is a joint foundation comprising both College and Cathedral.

The independent tribunal to investigate a complaint against the conduct of the Dean is taking place under the statutes of Christ Church, not under Church legislation.
Neither the Church Commissioners nor the wider Church of England have any role in setting the timetable or terms of reference for the tribunal.
I am given to understand that the last scheduled hearing is currently timetabled for early July and await the outcome of that process.
