'The LBT Committee recently launched a policy on the use of LBT assets. The Committee was very pleased that the policy stimulated discussion and response from members. 

Some responses identified details of managing individual assets that were more appropriate to specific guidelines developed by the user groups and sub-committees responsible for day-to-day management of assets. We have edited the policy to further emphasise the distinction between this top-level policy covering all LBT assets and guidelines for day-to-day management of individual assets. The over-arching purpose of this policy is to ensure all LBT assets are managed for the benefit of members in a consistent way. 

Use of assets by non-members raised some concern. The policy has to acknowledge there are some circumstances in which LBT assets will be used by non-members. Recognising these concerns the policy has been edited to distinguish between activities endorsed by the LBT Committee in which non-members are invited to use our assets (with examples provided) and private use by non-members. While it is conceivable that there may be circumstances in which non-members are allowed private use of LBT assets the policy recognises this would be unusual and that prospective private users should be encouraged to become members.'

 Feedback is welcome, and can be submitted to .  It will be used as input when the policy is considered for review by the committee.
