What Companies House say about using the word COUNCIL
To use this word the company should ordinarily be an independent advisory body; a
deliberative assembly; or a governing, supervisory or representative body of an
activity, trade, business or profession. Evidence must be produced to show that the
company will be what it claims and that it has the support of whoever it claims it will
govern, supervise, or look to it for expertise.

You will also need to obtain a letter or email of non-objection from a government
body, a local or specified public authority or a relevant body.
