More on the Malvern Hills Trust
The charity Trust looks after the Hills and Commons and is governed by the Malvern Hills Acts.
The Board of trustees is the body legally responsible for managing the Trust, with 11 of its trustees elected by the voters of Malvern, Guarlford, Colwall and Mathon.
The trustees are responsible for the strategic oversight of the charity, ensuring that it is meeting its statutory and charitable objectives. The Board meets at least five times a year, with most trustees also sitting on at least one of the four committees.
Candidates standing for the election do not have to live in the Chase ward but must be over 18 and registered to vote in, live in or work in one of the wards or parishes that pay the Trust’s levy (town of Malvern, parishes of Colwall, Guarlford, Malvern Wells, Mathon or West Malvern).
