The High Weald Joint Advisory Committee (JAC) champions the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Membership is as follows:
· a councillor from each of the 15 local authorities whose area is covered by the High Weald AONB designation;
· a representative from Natural England; and
· five representatives co-opted from Forum member organisations to represent community, recreation, nature conservation, farming and forestry interests.
The High Weald Joint Advisory Committee (JAC) meets twice a year, usually in November and March. An Officers' Working Group provides the JAC with professional advice on its terms of reference, core budget, business plan and policy related activities.
East Sussex County Council is the ''host'' authority for the JAC. It is the employer for the JAC's staff team, it is the JAC's treasurer, and it enters into contracts on the JAC's behalf. It also provides personnel, finance and IT support.
