Our constitution says that the activities of the NP Delivery Group are coordinated through a Committee of local residents representing the members.
The AS&S NP DG Committee consists of a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 9 members who are local residents of either Sunninghill & Ascot or Sunningdale parishes and who are representatives of project or subject groups formed to progress the purpose of the NP DG, as defined in the Constitution. One committee member may be co-opted as a representative of SPAE so as to encourage close and regular communication between AS&S NP DG and SPAE.
The current committee members are:
