To receive and consider the report of the Operations & Estates Officer.
The Committee received and considered the report of the Operations & Estates Advisor concerning the future of the old bowls building at the Leys.
Given that the building was structurally sound, and its use was currently an addition to the Leys Depot storage area, members agreed that the building should remain in situ. However, members noted its unsightly appearance directly opposite the bowls club and agreed that the area around it should be tidied and planted with shrubs and climbing plants. It would also be an opportunity to erect bird boxes and bee habitats if appropriate.
1. That the report be noted; and
2. That the old bowls building be left as it is structurally, but the immediate area be tidied and planted with shrubs and climbing plants. Consideration should also be given to biodiversity, including bird boxes and bee habitats if possible.
