Barbican Estate Residents Consultation Committee

This page lists the meetings for Barbican Estate Residents Consultation Committee.


Information about Barbican Estate Residents Consultation Committee

The Barbican Residents Consultative Committee (RCC) exists to enable consultation and the flow of information between the Corporation of London and tenants and to work towards a partnership approach to management






1.     Each House is entitled to nominate one representative to the RCC.  If the nominated representative is unable to attend, the House may nominate a substitute. In the event of a vote (AGM only) elected members must declare their interest in relevant issues.


2.     In addition to the House representatives, the RCC will include three officers; - i.e.  the Chair and two Deputy Chairs.  Officers will be elected annually at the AGM and may serve for a maximum of four years in their role.


3.     Candidates for the officer positions must be House representatives or existing officers of the RCC. Nominations for officers will be requested in advance of the AGM and nominees will be offered the opportunity to circulate a brief statement to support their candidacy.  Further nominations may be proposed at the AGM itself.  Members may self-nominate.  The immediate past-RCC Chair may stand for election as a Deputy Chair, for one year only, to ensure a smooth transition and the handover of institutional knowledge and contacts.


4.     The Chair of the Barbican Association is an ex-officio Member of the RCC, providing that the Barbican Association reciprocates by ensuring that its rules provide ex-officio membership of its General Council to the Chair of the RCC.  The Chair of the Barbican Association is not eligible to stand for election as an officer of the RCC.


5.     In the event that an officer position becomes vacant, after the AGM, an election may be held at a subsequent RCC meeting. Officers elected in this way, within six months of the next AGM, may continue in office without having to seek re-election at that AGM.
