Public Recess: Please note that this is a meeting of council members and the only juncture at which the public are invited to speak is during Public Recess.  Public recess lasts 10 minutes and speakers will have 3 minutes each to make their point heard.  If large numbers of persons wish to convey the same or a similar point, then please elect a spokesperson before the meeting to put forward a statement for expediency.  No decisions will be made at this meeting in regards to items raised by the public that do not already feature in an agenda item.

Please also be aware that the council has agreed and published a method statement in regards to the Recreation Hall/Ground project which includes its intention to hold a 28 day public consultation when plans are sufficiently advanced enough to consult on.  As such, the council will not be entering into discussion with the public on any plans, locations or other issues relating to the project until the public consultation is published and opened for public feedback.  Based on progress to date, it is unlikely that the council will be in a position to open a public consultation before April 2023.
