The Conservators
Return to Home Page
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 elected 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.
