Allotments: After hearing the contents of a letter received from Stratton & Holborrow dated the 20th May 2009, the Council resolved not to consider the inclusion of a car park on the area of Glebe land adjacent to the Memorial Hall. An alternative area for allotments on the site, different from that originally proposed, would be considered. The current tenant of the land had been notified of the Councils proposals. Another site at Glenmorris will also be considered.
Public Toilets – public access: The Council await the decision from the Memorial Hall Committee regarding the fencing of the boundary wall before making a decision on whether or not to provide an alternative access to the public toilets.
