The Committee received and considered the report and verbal update of the Town Clerk/CEO.
Members queried the continued delay in the delivery of Madley, Unterhaching and Ralegh Crescent play areas into Witney Town Councils control and asked if the council could agree with West Oxfordshire District Council (WODC) for a transfer and payment to cover the essential repairs. This would be instead of a continued wait for WODC to carry out the works and then transfer, particularly as additional repairs were now required at Unterhaching due to the deterioration of the Cotswold walling. WODC Members at the meeting informed they would enquire as to progress with the transfer process.

Members were pleased to hear that the redevelopment of The Leys skatepark was to continue as a stand-alone project and that £102,000 was held in reserve towards the project. The Project Officer had advised that the tenderers would be required to assist in sourcing funds via grant applications.
