Town Planners:-

The Chairman updated members on Town Planners as follows:- The Council currently have two chartered town planners working for us following approval at full council last year.  One is involved with the Neighbourhood Plan and her fees will be paid for by a government grant.  The other is involved in possible development opportunities in relation to land and buildings owned by the Council.  The fees hopefully would be self financing.  Their work is on-going and I will update both the planning committee and full Council as their work progresses.
