Cllr Wood summarised the current situation regarding the matter of the Scouts’ proposal for the redevelopment of Club Hall. Their representative has produced a revised proposal addressing the substantive matters which it is understood gave rise to concerns raised with and by PDC Planning in relation to the previous proposal. Cllr Wood also summarised the unrelated matter of a request from the Scouts representative that the Council assist them to find alternative storage for the Venture Scouts equipment. Their representative had wondered if this might be stored in the existing Club Hall, if there is room, and if not then whether storage containers may be placed on the ground adjacent to the hall.
