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.
