The Wimbledon and Putney Commons Conservators’ Election is a postal vote that is held every 3 years to elect 5 trustees to oversee the management of the Commons.
We are supporting the candidates in “Common Sense” for the Future of the Commons group; Tim Bowen, Peter Hirsch, David Hince, Sarah-Jane Holden and Diane Neil Mills. They are a group of individual candidates who will bring a wide variety of skills and experience to the table for the good of the future of the Commons.
If you live within 3/4 mile of Wimbledon Common or in the old Parish of Putney you pay a small levy with your council tax and hence in the next couple of weeks every eligible voter in your household will receive voting papers in which you can vote for five candidates.
The forthcoming election is an opportunity for a new board Trustees. The role of Conservator/Trustee is voluntary, unpaid and not associated with any political party.
Just as importantly, if you feel able to share this with as many of your friends and neighbours (in the levy area), we might just be able to get the job done!!
