The Commission is comprised of 20 members, ten of whom are elected commoners and ten appointed representatives of various bodies. It sits for a three year period and is next subject to re-constitution on 1st May 2018. Any listed commoner is entitled to stand for election and only listed commoners may vote. West Berkshire Council arranges and controls the voting procedure. It has to be understood that all commoners entitled rights are subject to the property and not to the individual owner. Properties and current owners listing is held by WBC.
The bulk of duties placed on the Commission by the Act requires it to use reasonable endeavours to exercise its functions in a manner which: -
(a) restores and conserves the Common as a peaceful place of natural beauty and in particular, conserves its flora and fauna and ecological, archeological geological and physiographical features
(b) conserves any part of the Common which is a site of special scientific interest
(c) subject to paragraphs (a) and (b) above -
It requires the Council and the Commission to exercise their functions in a manner which implements the policy set out in the Management Plan, also to maintain a register of commoners and commoners' rights. BBOWT under its lease acts for the Council for this duty, but the Council remains responsible under the Act.
