West Witney Sports Ground Storage Request - Witney Road Runners

To receive and consider the report of the Operations Manager.


With the permission of the Chair, this item was moved up the agenda so the members of public could hear the discussion and outcome.


The Committee received and considered the report of the Operations Manager following a request from Witney Road Runners (WRR) for a storage container at West Witney Sports Ground.


Members were concerned about any impact the siting of the container would have on any potential plan to relocate the council’s depot to West Witney. The Head of Estates and Operations reassured members a suitable site would be sought so as not to have any negative impact.


A proposal was made by Councillor Smith and seconded by Councillor Crouch that the council allow a 20-foot length, green coloured container to be permitted with all costs being met by Witney Road Runners. A vote was taken, and all Members were in agreement.




1.      That, the report be noted and,

2.      That, the request by Witney Road Runners for the siting of a storage container at West Witney Sports Ground be agreed and,

3.      That, the Operations Manager liaises with Witney Road Runners to arrange the installation.
