Statements from the candidates standing for election to the Board of the Malvern Hills Trust are now available to view.
Elections will be held on the 1st of November in the wards of Chase and Wells, and those registered to vote within these wards will have the opportunity to vote.
The Trust is the charity that looks after the Hills and Commons, which are protected under the Malvern Hills Acts, and its Board of trustees are responsible for managing the organisation. Every four years eleven of the trustees are elected by the voters of Malvern, Guarlford, Colwall and Mathon.
Trustees are responsible for the strategic oversight of the charity, ensuring that it is meeting its statutory requirements and in caring for this iconic landscape is delivering the charity’s objects. The Board meets at least five times a year, with most trustees also sitting on one of the four committees.
The Malvern Hills Trust election will be held this year on Wednesday 1st November. The election process will be held in accordance with the electoral arrangements as outlined in the 1924 Malvern Hills Act. (The Malvern Hills Trust is the registered working name for the Malvern Hills Conservators).
