Further information for prospective candidates
The CEPC is a unique independent rating body set up by statute in 1824. Today it is responsible for the management of The Crown Estate land, being streets and ornamental terrace gardens, around Regent’s Park along with the latter at Carlton House Terrace. It also provides street cleaning, security patrolling and parking regulation services in its area of operation around Regent’s Park. The CEPC is independent of The Crown Estate, The Royal Parks and local authorities.
The Commissioners are traditionally, but not necessarily, resident (including corporate and former) ratepayers and those appointed ex-offico by The Crown Estate, The Royal Parks and HM Treasury. Commissioners represent all CEPC ratepayers, not specifically those in the terrace or area in which they may live or work. Appointments are made for an initial term of three years, renewable for two further consecutive four year terms and only up to the age of seventy five. Commissioners receive no remuneration and do not usually claim any expenses arising from their duties.
Appointment of Commissioners
Recommendations for appointments are made to the Lords of HM Treasury (the Whips Office) following a competitive selection process managed by the current body of Commissioners. Appointees are traditionally, but not necessarily, drawn from CEPC rate paying leaseholders of the Crown Estate properties at Regent’s Park or adjacent to Carlton House Terrace. Appointments are made with the aim of ensuring that the Commission has available to it an appropriate balance of skills, experience and professional expertise in order to conduct its business.
Commissioners represent all CEPC ratepayers, not specifically those in the terrace or area in which they may live or work, as well as other users of the roads and pavements managed and maintained. The appointment process also aims to achieve a broad representation. Appointments are made for an initial term of three years, renewable for two further consecutive four year terms and only up to the age of seventy five. Commissioners receive no remuneration and do not claim any expenses arising from their duties.
