To receive and consider the report of the Operations Manager.
The Committee received the report of the Operations Manager.
Members were concerned about the quality of finish which might be carried out by the Probation team who had approached the Church about decoration and maintenance to the railings here, particularly as the work was not currently required and these were untrained individuals working at such a sensitive site. A vote was taken, and seven members were in favour of refusing the request, there was one abstention.
All members agreed that the decision to paint the railing should be deferred to 2024/25
A member suggested that there may be alternative work that the probation team could carry out. The Chair will investigate if this is a possibility.
1. That, the report be noted and,
2. That, the request from Holy Trinity Church for the probation service to carry out work be refused and,
3. That, the Chair investigates alternative options for work.
