The minutes of the meeting held on 15 November 2021, as amended, were adopted and signed as a correct record by the Chair.


Minute SC573 – Public Benches - The Deputy Town Clerk advised that the District Council had responded regarding the provision of public benches in the town. Bench Types were to be agreed and it was noted that the siting of a bench outside 53 High Street was not being pursued.


It was further reported that funding was still available from the Welcome Back Fund and it had been suggested that a large-scale chess set could be installed on Market Square. Members, whilst supporting the principle, considered that there could be issues with storage of the chess pieces as this was already a problem for the Town Council. It was suggested, and agreed, not to support the suggestion as made but that alternative options should be looked at.


SC574 – Open Spaces Infrastructure - The Deputy Town Clerk confirmed that this was still being finalised by officers.


SC575 – Tower Hill Bus Stop – It was reported that a letter had been sent to Oxfordshire County Council confirming the Town Council position regarding a new bus stop.
