To consider apologies and reasons for absence.
Committee Members who are unable to attend the meeting should notify the Democratic & Legal Services Officer (firstname.lastname@example.org) prior to the meeting, stating the reason for absence.

Apologies for absence were received from Councillors O Collins and A McMahon.
Councillor T Ashby attended for Councillor McMahon.
