The Commons Conservators meet in the Town Hall four times a year, usually in March, June, September and December. The meetings for 2019 will be held on the following dates:
21 March 2019
20 June 2019
19 September 2019
5 December 2019
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 Borough Councillors, who have selected Barbara Cobbold as Chairman.
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 in the Town Hall at 2.00pm on 20 June 2019. Please note that the Conservators are meeting in private session shortly beforehand, and so members of the public will not be admitted until invited at 2.00.
