Every three years an election is held to select five of the eight Wimbledon & Putney Commons Conservators. The next election will take place very shortly on 6th March 2024.
If you have a genuine interest in all aspects of the Commons, live in the levy paying area and are on the local council electoral register, this is a unique opportunity for you to be instrumental in shaping the future of the Commons.
Being a Conservator (Trustee) is rewarding and enjoyable. It is a great way to be involved in the local community, by helping to manage one of South West London’s most important public open spaces. Being a Conservator (Trustee) can expose you to new experiences that can be diverse and interesting. It can present you with new challenges, both constructive and exciting as well as sometimes challenging in balancing conflicting interests and priorities. You will do so as part of a team of Conservators (Trustees) and the executive and will have the opportunity to contribute your unique skills and experience while learning from others too.
Although the meetings for prospective candidate briefing sessions have finished, the Returning Officer and/or the Chief Executive are happy to hold ad hoc meetings with anyone who would like to learn more about the role before the deadline for submitting applications on 24 January 2024.
