The Assets Committee is appointed at the AGM in May and sits for the following 12 months. Meetings are on the fourth Tuesday of every other month (the same months as Full Council) and start at 7:30pm. They are currently being held in the Bishopstoke Methodist Church.
The Assets Committee has between 5 and 7 members and needs at least 3 members present to be quorate. In some areas it has the power to make decisions on behalf of the Council and in others it can only make recommendations. This is detailed in the Terms of Reference. The Committee reports to Full Council which considers the recommendations of the Committee and notes its decisions. The Chair of the Committee also sits on the Human Resources Committee.
