The Dulwich Estate

Advisory Committee

The Scheme of Management requires the Managers (under clause 16. (b) of the Scheme Document) to form a consultative committee (to be known as "The Advisory Committee") of not less than 8 persons of whom half shall be representatives of the Managers and half shall be representatives of and nominated by such residents or amenity societies as the Managers consider appropriate the numbers of representatives of each such society being determined by the Managers.

The Advisory Committee currently comprises four Trustees of The Dulwich Estate (as representatives of the Managers) and four members of The Dulwich Society (www.dulwichsociety.com).

The Advisory Committee meets three times per year and considers all matters pertaining to the operation of the Scheme of Management. These include updating and new Policy Guidelines, budgets and forecasts for the operation of the Scheme (determining the Scheme Charge) and any issues affecting the amenity within the boundaries of the Dulwich Estate.

In addition to the meetings, all members of the Advisory Committee receive (in accordance with clause 16. (b) (iii) of the Scheme Document) details of all applications made or notices served under the Scheme. The members of the Advisory Committee have the right to inspect the details of all applications and the Managers are required to have regard to any representations the members may make. Where a member of the Advisory Committee objects to an applicant's proposals, the application has to go to the Scheme of Management Committee for the Managers' decision.

Members of the Advisory Committee may also raise with the Managers any matters concerning the amenities of the Dulwich Estate.
