DEP General Meeting – 21 September 2023

It was great to see so many of our partners, institutional advisers, and other interested parties at the General Meeting held at East Suffolk House on 21Sep23. This gathering was two meetings in one:

  • a General Meeting to check that our Steering Group members were happy with the direction that the DEP was travelling, and to formally approve our (slightly revised) constitution and confirm Thomas Yeung and Colin Nicholson as Chair and Vice-Chair
  • an Estuary Plan working meeting to discuss and agree the outline structure of the revised Estuary Plan, and to discuss and agree who would be best placed to contribute to each of the focus areas

The minutes of that meeting are available here, but in summary:

  • the DEP constitution and Management Arrangements were formally approved and posted on the website
  • Thomas Yeung and Colin Nicholson were confirmed in place as Chair and Vice-Chair
  • the Sept 2023 Financial Report was reviewed and approved
  • ten ‘focus areas’ (that will eventually be reflected in the structure of the revised Estuary Plan) were identified and agreed, and teams allocated to each
  • we agreed that the next DEP meeting will take place on Thursday 18 January 2023 at East Suffolk House, and will be a public open meeting

The agreed Constitution and Management Arrangements have been published on the website, as well as the ten ‘focus areas’. We will list the lead person/organisation for each area once they have agreed to be named.
