Document number R9541, agenda pages 10 - 27 refer.

Manager Parks and Facilities, Rosie Bartlett, and Team Leader Facilities, Gary Alsop, presented the report, noting that this decision was before the committee as a petition had previously been received from local residents.

It was noted that it would have been helpful if officers had met with petitioners to better understand their concerns, however the petitioners had been advised of the committee meeting in case they wished to attend and were provided with a copy of the report.
