The Committee received and considered the report and verbal update of the Town Clerk & Chief Executive Officer.
It was advised these were draft estimates based on current knowledge and final figures would be provided to the Full Council at the end of the budget-setting period.
Members discussed the request received from West Witney Sports & Social Club (WWSCC) for permission to install kitchen facilities in the adjoining glass house next to the clubhouse. The Town clerk confirmed that WWSCC have issues with ventilation in the current kitchen and therefore it is not suitable for use, hence this request
Members were unanimously in favour of granting permission to WWSCC, however it must be stressed that it was their responsibility to ensure all environmental permissions and certifications were obtained. Due to this request, the Committee agreed not to pursue any further requests for a mobile food trading unit on the site.
The Town Clerk confirmed that the next year’s budget provision for Ralegh Crescent Play Area was on the assumption that the transfer of ownership from the District Council would take place.
