9. Christie Hall:

With the immediate lease issues sorted out there was a general consensus that the status of the Christie Hall needs to be resolved. In particular the level of betterment using grants etc should be recognised. Would it be possible to raise the money to buy the site? If so who would be the purchaser? All councillors to think about a way forward to discuss at the next meeting.

 
10. Correspondence:

a)     Confirmed that the noise complaint south of the bridge was a private party

b)     PCC are aware of the damage to the south end of the bridge

c)     The picnic area toilets – Try to set up a meeting with Highways England and the police to discuss the way forward. It would be good to include the Safer Peterborough Partnership in the discussion and then possibly the Crime Commissioner.

Matters for Consideration – The first site list for the local Development plan has been published. There is an application to include 1.55Ha of Seeds Field adjacent to the Robins Field properties.
