The Trust Board and GP Board believe that their committees assist in the effective functioning of the Boards and help ensure that the views of Independent Trustees & Directors* are effectively represented.
The Board have established three committees:
- Audit Committee of the Trust Board;
- Audit Committee of the GP Board; and
- Governance, Compensation and Environmental Committee.

An Independent Trustee or Director is one who is not an employee or executive officer of Dream and who is free from any direct or indirect relationship which could, in the view of the Board, be reasonably expected to interfere with independent judgment.
