Note on the body concerned

The Buildings and Estates Subcommittee of the Planning and Resource Allocation Committee is a new body set up under Decree (1) of 30 June 2000 (Gazette, p. 1397) as part of the changed governance structures of the University. It will be responsible, under the new Council's Planning and Resource Allocation Committee, for strategic proposals for the development of the University's functional estate, taking account of institutional plans and environmental, aesthetic, architectural, and heritage issues; the acquisition, leasing, disposal, and allocation of functional land and property; and all proposals for capital spending on the University's functional estate, including the initiation and management of major building projects. The normal period of office of members of the subcommittee will be three years, but one of the first two members elected by Congregation will have a period of two years in order to ensure a more regular pattern of subsequent elections. He or she will then be eligible to stand for a further period (or further periods) of three years.
