On Monday I attended the Grounds and Environment Committee at LLTC – we were joined by the judges for Communities in Bloom International Challenge from Canada and Italy. They spent several days looking at the excellent displays around the town – many thanks to the volunteers who keep the town looking so beautiful.
We received an update on the refurbishment of Pages Park pavilion, which is due to start in approximately 2 weeks. And we had a report on the town’s allotments – we are trying to get the waiting list cleared and get vacant plots into use.
On Tuesday I attended CBC Executive at Dunstable. If you want to watch the meeting, click here – issues discussed included the M1-A6 link and the land north of Luton, housing enforcement policy and Children’s Services (extending the age range for Children’s Centres, and taking them back into CBC management).
On Wednesday evening we had the LLTC planning committee – the main item was the proposed development of the Old Sorting Office, which the committee objected to. See full report here.
On Thursday I attended the Governors’ meeting at Leedon Lower School.
On Friday I visited Sandhills to look at some maintenance issues of open land, and on Roman Gate I looked at some parking problems. Both to be followed up with the developers.
Looking ahead to this week:
On Monday evening it is LLTC Policy and Finance Committee.
On Tuesday I will be attending the Police and Crime Panel at Bedford, which includes the confirmation of the new Chief Constable.
On Thursday I will be attending the General Purposes Committee at CBC.
