The Conservators todayThe Conservators
There are eight conservators who are appointed by RBBC and each has a three-year term of office. Two conservators are appointed to represent the owners of the soil (principally RBBC) and these are usually serving Councillors. RBBC invites the London Borough of Sutton (adjoining the northern boundary of the Commons) to nominate a representative for appointment by the RBBC. Each year RBBC posts public notices advertising two of the remaining six appointments, to represent members of the public. The applicants are considered and appointments made by RBBC (as successors to the vestry of the parish of Banstead); the existing conservators play no part in the appointments. The posts are voluntary and unpaid.
The Conservators hold quarterly meetings (usually in January, April, July and October) that are open to the public. For the date of future meetings of the Conservators please go to the News page.
The staff consists of three full-time and two part-time people:
The Clerk (part-time), the BCC’s Chief Executive, is responsible to the Conservators and carries out all administrative duties on their behalf.
The Warden, promotes and implements the work programmes and weekly schedules for the day to day work and supervises the Keepers, in accordance with the Management Plans and Statements.
The Keepers , we have two full-time and 1 part-time keepers who perform the day-to-day tasks under the supervision of the Warden.
Banstead Heath Consultative Group (BHCG) meets twice a year, in spring and autumn, to discuss any subject of interest or concern relating to the Heath. Although membership of the BHCG is by invite anyone interested is welcome to attend to observe.
