Meeting Room Venue – A discussion took place with regards to holding meetings in a different venue/location. Various costs and enquiries have been made for alternative premises. Attending meetings outside the village would be impossible for residents that cannot drive with the bus service stopping around 7pm being a small village.
The church in the village is currently having roof repairs and is currently closed; however, this does not have any facilities to hold a meeting as it is too small with no area for tables & Chairs
The meeting room at the Burghwallis is a separate meeting room to the public house with a closed bar. No alcohol/refreshments are allowed to be consumed whilst the meeting is in progress
RESOLVED to stay at the Burghwallis pub as there is no other suitable venue.
It was reported on Lady Gap Lane, Public Right of Way, needs the hedgerow cutting back as this was difficult to pass.
It was reported the hedgerow recently removed was not an ancient hedgerow.
A few minor “glitches” have been sorted. A new TAB would be requested to upload the Councils Policy Documents for easy access.
