Minutes:

13.2      On behalf of the Conservative Group, Councillor Nemeth moved a motion to add a recommendation 2.4 as shown in bold italics below:

 

2.4      That committee expresses the wish that no further buildings are added to the existing clubhouse site

 

13.3      The Chair and Councillor Wilkinson formally seconded the motion.

 

13.4      In response to questions from Councillor Nemeth and Councillor Wilkinson, it was explained that officers were in continued discussions with Downland Lions and that it was anticipated that the project could succeed without parking, but provision would be made for blue badge holders and a drop off point for school buses. There was a bus route that stopped reasonably close to the site and it was anticipated that there would be people’s preference to walk to the site and take in the countryside.
