Cllr Newman had advised Councillor M. Eames-Petersen that he would be arriving late to the meeting (he did not attend by close of the meeting).
A resident raised concerns regarding review of the Lease for Howe Dell Community Hall and lack of public consultation. The Mayor advised that until County Council (as landlord) advised further the Council was not in a position to carry out any consultation. As soon as further advice had been received (and the current lease could be amended or surrendered), then community consultation would be carried out.
There were none.
