The Commons Conservators meet in the Town Hall four times a year, usually in March, June, September and December. The meetings for 2018 will be held on the following dates:
22 March 2018
21 June 2018
20 September 2018
6 December 2018
These meetings are attended by all twelve Conservators as well as the Clerk, Treasurer and Warden with the Administrator to take minutes.
The Chairmanship rotates through the three groups of Conservators. In the current year it is the turn of the Freehold Tenants who have selected Ian Marshall as Chairman. At the meeting in March 2018 the Chairmanship will move to the Borough Councillors.
In addition to those named above, the Conservators can invite others to the meeting. The Chairman of the Friends of Tunbridge Wells and Rusthall Commons, Clive Evans, is always invited together with the representative for Rusthall Parish Council, Jennifer Blackburn, and the local media. Other people may also be invited to discuss particular agenda items if appropriate.
The meetings are open to members of the public who can observe from the observers' seats at the end of the meeting room but not speak unless invited to do so by the Conservators.
The next meeting will be held at 2.00p.m. on 22 March 2018. This is the agenda:
