Buxton Civic Association – Group Structure

A Group of volunteer Directors administers the association and takes all major policy decisions.

The day-to-day workload is delegated to five groups, each made up of association members and at least one person, who will represent that Group. Within agreed remits and budgets, considerable autonomy is available to each group.

The General Manager, who also attends Board Meetings, implements policies and decisions approved by the Directors and groups as appropriate.

The Groups are separated as follows:

  • Corporate Affairs Group

  • Planning Group
  • Woodlands Group
  • Places and Spaces Group
