Full Agenda: Agenda for Parish Council Meeting – 8th August 2016
Item 11, is the most intriguing. New Village Hall:
(i) To consider the amendments to the Lease and Agreement to Lease as proposed by the Village Hall Trust Upper Rissington Parish Council. Real progress being made.
(ii) To consider and decide whether to take further legal advice concerning the Objectives and Powers sections of the Village Hall Trust’s Constitution. Mmmh – why at this late hour?
(iii) Consider and agree interim hall booking procedure prior to Village Hall Trust taking over the Lease of the Village Hall. Judging by (ii) a very good idea as I see the Trust walking away if the above is not solved. Fingers crossed, I am not reading too much into it.
I do hope an agreement is going to be made on the 8th. Jason Corban was extremely positive at the last PC meeting. However, I am guessing the missing Cllrs from the last meeting maybe having a negative input regarding item 8 (ii).
Overall, I am no longer 100% confident that it’s a done deal. Hopefully common sense will prevail and the majority of councillors consider and agree that the Trust run the Hall ASAP.
Item 13. Play Park Repairs: To consider options and agree solution relating to the repair of the large multi-play unit at the play park. I would prefer the offending item to be considered for replacement, as its rotting away.
Item 14. Tree Works Phase Two: Agree second phase of tree works as proposed by Town & Country Trees. I thought this was agreed a year ago. Regardless, the trees in the village desperately need pruning.
