The Trust recognises its corporate responsibility to sustainable development and reduction of its carbon footprint, and sets the example for this by conducting paperless meetings.
Whilst a limited number of printed board packs will be available at the meeting, we would prefer that members of the public use the electronic versions where possible, enabling us to minimise costs associated with printing papers.
If you do require a hard copy of the papers to be available at the meeting, please contact the Corporate Governance team at least two working days prior to the meeting.
The Board meetings
On arrival, please make yourself known to the Corporate Governance team.
A nameplate for each Board member is displayed on the table to help you identify who is speaking. The Board will consider the items on the agenda in turn. Members may not actively discuss each item in detail. This does not mean that the item has not received careful consideration. It may be because the matter has been discussed in detail at Board committee level or because no-one wishes to challenge the recommendations being made.
Each paper will include a front sheet which outlines the summary and the recommendation to the Board.

Members of the public are welcome to take written notes at the meeting, but cannot record the proceedings in other ways.
