The Board was responsible for the overall management of the Devonshire West Big Local Plan. It had to consist of at least 8 members with Devonshire West residents being in the majority. In many ways the Board members acted like Trustees and had to operate in accordance with a Memorandum of Understanding and a set of policies and procedures set out in the Board Handbook.
Board members were elected annually at the Annual General Meeting. The Executive Officer posts were elected by the Board.
The Board used to meet once a month, and these meetings were open to the public. The only exception to this, was the Grant Awards Meetings which were confidential.
The Local Trust representative use to attend all meetings as did a 3VA representative. 3VA was our Local Trusted Organisation which held and administered the funds on our behalf.
