(a)           Petitions


(i)             Neglect of Public Facilities at Wish Park is Impacting the Community's Health



c)       Deputations


1)             Wish Park


38.1      The Committee considered a deputation referred from Full Council requesting improvements to Wish Park.


38.2      The Chair provided the following response:


“Firstly, I’m very disappointed that things have not moved forward substantially since you brought this petition to Full Council. I want to thank you for pursuing this and acting so diligently on behalf of the communities who use Wish Park.

Multiple factors have conspired to create the current situation, and I recognise that it has not been handled well by the council. I’m not going to regurgitate my response from Full Council. I have contacted the relevant officers in order to get things moving again, and I see there has been further contact this morning.

I understand that senior officers are due to visit the park, and I will be receiving a proper update on Thursday this week.

In the meantime, I’m going to request an officer report to look at the various things that have gone wrong here.

Please continue to copy me into correspondence. In addition, Cllr Winder, our lead on Parks and Green Spaces, and myself will be very happy to meet with you and residents at the park.

We clearly need a solution here, and you’ve done a very good job of keeping it on the agenda”.


38.3      Resolved- That the Committee receive an officer report on the matter.
